Towards a world with drinkable rivers

Drinkable Rivers  aims for a world with drinkable rivers. Not so long ago, most of our rivers were drinkable. Now, almost none. When we will have drinkable rivers again, it means that the entire watershed, and all natural life in it, is healthy and in balance. In other words, the health of our rivers is the ultimate indicator for the health of all living beings on this planet. A world with drinkable rivers requires of all human beings to act full of care, every day. Therefore, they propose drinkable rivers to be the guiding compass for human society, a common global goal to strive for.

Stichting (meaning: Foundation) Drinkable Rivers mobilises people in watersheds to care for their rivers. With their truly unique watershed approach, they emphasize that all living beings are connected within the watershed they live. Regardless of national borders, language barriers or cultural differences, all of us are dependent on the health of our rivers. Their mantra is “experience, love, care”. We believe that once people experience their river, they will learn and understand her values and our dependence, start to love her and begin to take care of rivers.
