YOUth for Living Rivers
- Get active for rivers in a time when Europe revisits its water laws!
We’re calling youth across Europe to stand up for rivers! Get active with us for the protection of European waterbodies (rivers, wetlands, lakes), our drinking water, and natural and recreation areas. Join and support the movement NOW
The law protecting European rivers and lakes is in danger from companies and governments who want to gut it! We need your voice to protect the law that protects our water and our future. You can find detailed information on the protection of our waters and the legal frame.
Our message is clear: We want healthy, living rivers and water bodies. We want a strong water protection law, and want to see it implemented effectively across the EU. Last, we want youth participation at all levels and included in decision-making! Revisit our Youth Water Manifesto for these points in more detail!
In 2018 we must make sure that our message is heard by politicians and their advisors. They will debate the future of water law (also known as the Water Framework Directive) – and potentially make significant changes. Not necessarily in a good direction!
That is why we need to stand up and jump in now! Let’s make our voices heard! You can read more about concrete action possibilities and learn more about the background of our call here.
This action is initiated by our long-term partner Generation Earth with support by the Youth Network for River Action.
