Event description
Join our next webinar to discuss with river defenders and experts about the social impacts of hydropower and successful river activism.

About this event

For years, we have highlighted how the ongoing hydropower boom is destroying Europe’s last free-flowing rivers and riverine ecosystems in the Western Balkans. However, the fight for free-flowing rivers is also about people, the way hydropower affects them and their relentless efforts to halt dam plans.

In our upcoming webinar we will discuss the social dimensions of hydropower. We will talk about the impacts hydropower projects have on communities, their economies, livelihoods, and culture. And we will hear from activists who have dedicated their lives and energy to fighting destructive dams: what motivates them, which have been their most successful strategies, how they have dealt with major obstacles to their activism, and how we can collectively strengthen our fight against new hydropower plants.

Please join us on 4 November from 15.00-17.00 (CEWT) for some inspirational talks, stories and a moderated roundtable discussion with river activists and experts from the Balkans and beyond.
