To mark World Water Day the United Nations in partnership with the Goethe Institute invites you to the screening of TAPPED on Tuesday, 22 March 2011, 6:30 p.m.
Is access to clean drinking water a basic human right , or a commodity that should be bought like any other article of commerce?
Stephanie Soechtig’s documentary Tapped is an unflinching examination of the big business of bottled water. From the plastic production to the ocean in which so many of these bottles end up, this documentary follows the path of the bottled water industry and the communities which were the unwitting chips on the table.
Tapped illustrates the undeniable fact that bottled water is more of a behavioural issue than a necessity, and, contrary to popular belief, is not beneficial to our health.
The film will be followed by a Q & A session with
Thierry Lucas (United Nations Environment Programme)
Janos Tisovszky, UNRIC Deputy Director, will moderate the discussion.
