Woman of Courage 2016!

UNANIMA is proud to announce that the recipient of our 2016 Woman of Courage Award is Meera Karunananthan!

Her campaign is lauded as one of the strongest rights-based campaigns during the negotiations for a new sustainable development agenda! Meera organizes the Council of Canadians’ public access-to-water campaign, called the Blue Planet Project. She mobilizes public opposition to privatization of water and bulk water exports while organizing grassroots political movements in many countries. READ MORE.
