On 15 March, C3’s director, Christine Hancock, chaired this event as part of JustWater2017. The panel discussed what a healthy relationship with water looks like across the planet and focused on the importance of water justice in an unjust world.

Our speakers were:


  • Dr Lee Hooper, Reader & Senior Lecturer in Research Synthesis & Nutrition, Norwich Medical School, University of East Anglia
  • Professor Hugh Montgomery, Professor of Intensive Care Medicine and Director of the UCL Institute for Human Health and Performance
  • The panel was chaired by Christine Hancock, Founder and Director of C3 Collaborating for Health


Water is an essential element of life, something we all need to grow and thrive. We must establish healthy relationships between our own bodies and the water we need, and also look to areas around the world where access to clean drinking water and sanitation can be an everyday struggle.


JustWater2017 is a programme of churches and cathedrals around the world working together to raise awareness and activism about water.
