Water for life

Throughout the season of Lent I'm hoping to have a focus on water issues so any information and interesting links you can send me will be gratefully received.
Meanhwile today I want to highlight the invitation from the Ecumenical Water Network to a summer school on water from July 27th to August 5th based at the Ecumenical Institute in Bossey. You can find the application form here.
"Preserving the world’s water resources and securing access to water for all is one of the greatest challenges of the 21st century. In 2008, the Ecumenical Water Network will bring together about 20 young people from all over the world for a Summer School on Water."
You can learn more about the Ecumenical Water Network by going here and looking at the brochure here.

I stumbled across this on the Christian Aid website and thought you might be interested:

Thirst for life is the Cafod/Christian Aid Lent book. It features reflections on the common lectionary readings for each day of Lent with contributions from Chris Chivers, Anthea Dove, Mary Grey, Robert Kaggwa, Nicholas Sagovsky and Hugo Slim.
