Wetlands International Europe, EuroNatur, GEOTA, RiverWatch and WWF Adria invite you to the 3rd European Rivers Summit in Brussels.

About this event

The Summit aims to inspire a movement of connected citizens in Europe to protect and restore European rivers, fight new dams and remove obsolete barriers. Healthy rivers are essential to delivering the European Green Deal and we aim to connect river champions around Europe to policy-makers in Brussels, with a two-day in-person conference plus a third day to visit a river restoration site.

The event will inform attendees on the most important policy issues, big ideas and latest science around healthy rivers, and engage directly with Brussels as the home of the European Commission and Parliament in defending healthy rivers for people across Europe. We will also explore the power of communicating about rivers in film and art and see the transformative power of restoring urban rivers.

Please note that the event may sell out due to the capacity of the venue!

Ticket price includes admission to the European Rivers Summit on 29 and 30 September, lunch both days and all-day coffee, tea, snacks, and non-alcoholic drinks on-site; entry to the European Rivers Film Festival on the evening of 29 September followed by a reception with drinks and light food; and a field excursion on 1 October.
