Living river -- or transport canal?
Over 1,000 km of the Danube could be artificially deepened, regulated, or dammed, destroying many of Europe’s last great river landscapes and wetlands, including the myriad of benefits and services they provide, from drinking water to fish, tourism and recreation.
Transportation is one important use of our river – but not the only one. We want a living river, not just a canal. Fit the ships to the river, not the river to the ships!
