It is not uncommon to hear that someone is a fan of Leonardo DiCaprio, but hearing that Leonardo DiCaprio is someone else's fan - now, that is quite a conversation starter, especially if his heroes are housewives from a small village in Bosnia and Herzegovina. For over 500 days and nights, a group of women, and some men, defended their river Kruščica from small hydropower, having in turn earned the nickname of the Brave Women of Kruščica. The Hollywood celebrity was so impressed that he congratulated them on their fight himself. Today's episode is water as a resource, where we explore its two perspectives - water as hydropower and water as a source of life.
The Water Series is a podcast on various dimensions of water. Although it deeply considers issues of water scarcity, it goes beyond that, addressing more innovative perspectives, e.g. water as a human right, water as a weapon of war, water as a resource, etc. Additionally, the series seeks to explore existing and future solutions to the present water-related challenges. The Water Series is co-hosted by human rights lawyers Sonja Agata Bišćan and Zeyneb Kasmi and features expert interviews.
