I have just finished writing up the data and it does show a good variety of responses to the question about why a particular place was selected. The largest number of people (38%) gave a personal reason, some kind of attachment to a place. The second highest score was for Issues (14.28%) in which people talked about flooding but also about threats to biodiversity. There were some very thoughtful contributions from people who have known their particular spot for many years. The place with the most pins was a small, remote lake high on a mountain, which appears to have no specific water source. I think that it was a useful start to finding out what people think about water.We can share our feedback on wiki and hopefully Shipley will be able to share theirs soon.
Yesterday I was talking to someone who mentioned a film called 'Watermark' (Canada 2013 made by Jenifer Baichwal and Edward Burtynsky). It is described as a feature documentary that examines our relationship with water on a global scale. Does anyone know this film? Would it be a good one to screen at an event?
