Let's Discuss Solutions

Agreed, there are many challenges for our rivers. But let us assure you, none of them are without solutions. 

Some solutions need extensive infrastructure, some need community awareness and support and some are in completely within control of an individual. 

In this blog series, we specifically discuss what we can do for the river on individual level.
