Organisers of the Right2Water initiative have announced that they have collected more than one million signatures: it could be the first European Citizens' Initiative to succeed in collecting the necessary number of statements of support. Organisers of the initiative believe that 'water is a public good, not a commodity'. They invite the European Commission to 'propose legislation implementing the human right to water and sanitation as recognised by the United Nations, and promoting the provision of water and sanitation as essential public services for all'.
