About The Event
If one thinks about the Balkans, vacation at the Mediterranean Sea or past wars come to mind – but certainly no stunning rivers. Indeed, Europe’s Blue Heart beats on the Balkan peninsula: this is where one can still find the wildest and most beautiful rivers of the continent. And hardly anyone knows...
-Millions of people are being displaced by hydropower dams globally. These same dams are also sending species to extinction and contributing to climate change.
-91% of these planned projects will generate little energy — below 10 megawatts — despite being extremely expensive to build and to maintain.
-Hundreds of vigilant and steadfast women from the village of Kruščica, in Bosnia and Herzegovina, sat for almost a year in peaceful protest to protect their communities’ rivers, enduring physical violence from authorities to do so.
