Still Hopeful: A Conversation With Maude Barlow
Join FLOW for a livestream book event on Wednesday, June 15, at 6:00 p.m. EDT with Maude Barlow.

A lifelong and world-renowned champion of water, Barlow has authored a book built on her career of activism. Its title, appropriately, is "Still Hopeful: Lessons from a Lifetime of Activism."

In the book, Barlow tells stories of her work on many issues, perhaps most importantly her successful advocacy of water as a human right. Resisted by many governments, this idea faced enormous challenges, but in July of 2010, the work of Barlow and allies resulted in a declaration of the human right to water by the United Nations General Assembly. The vote was 122 nations in favor, with 41 abstentions—no nation voted against the resolution.

“Hope often defies logic and gives us the strength to continue when all the ‘facts’ tell us things are hopeless,” Barlow writes. “Hope helps us to put one foot in front of the other when despair would tell us not to move.”

FLOW Executive Director Liz Kirkwood will lead the conversation with Barlow, following a video tribute by FLOW founder Jim Olson, a dear friend of Maude Barlow.
