Water is Life!

Water is Life!

Fresh water is necessary for the survival of all living organisms on Earth. Our bodies are made up of about 60% water and we cannot survive more than a few days without it.

Water is a precious substance that meets our physical needs while at the same time being of great spiritual importance to many people. Water is also an integral part of many ecosystems that support us and a myriad of other species.

As part of McGill University’s Sustainability Projects Fund, the Water is Life! project was developed in order to raise student, staff, and faculty awareness about water issues and conservation measures — both on campus and at home.

This website invites us all to think about our water footprint and how we can reduce it.


You can view the full Water is Life! exhibit in the Repdath Museum or take the Water is Life! audio walking tour, available on CKUT's Ecolibrium Radio Residency blog.
