Join us on November 29th 13:45-17:30 CET for the FREE FLOW Webinar to learn about ways to protect and restore free-flowing rivers! FREE FLOW will feature keynote presentations, short interviews and an interview with Yurena Lorenzo of Wetlands International Europe on mainstreaming dam removal as a river restoration tool.

About the Free Flow project

The Free Flow project focuses on the question of how dam removal is understood as a river restoration tool and applied in relation to the new EU Nature Restoration Law free-flowing river target of 25,000km. The Free Flow project was initiated by the World Fish Migration Foundation with the aim of mainstreaming and scaling up dam removal in the river basins Rhine, Meuse, Scheldt and Ems. This will be done by stimulating knowledge exchange, connecting practitioners, celebrating success stories and opening up discussions in the river basin networks.

Don’t miss this interactive online experience involving polls of the audience, live interviews from field and even live music!

The webinar is part of the International River Symposium taking place in Vienna 27-30 November.
