World Water Peace Walk participants met at Holy Island, were given a blessing by Vicar Paul Collins and then walked the 15 miles to Belford. The Water Peace Walks are a brain child of World Water Prize winner 2015 and Flow Partnership member, Rajendra Singh of India (read about his project TBS here). His motivation is to avert global conflict over water and bring world peace through actively encouraging people to take steps into managing their water sources wisely.
A discussion over lunch in the ‘natural classroom’ about water and its relation to climate change – produced powerful ways forward for the group.
On arrival in Belford we were met and welcomed by champion of the Belford project and long time resident – Geoff O’Connell with the plaque proudly displayed.
