The Start of the Riverlution
Who are the most inspiring individuals working tirelessly to restore rivers in Europe? We call them the “DamBusters”. Pao Fernández Garrido from the Dam Removal Europe coalition is on a mission: to see their work at their local rivers and share these exciting stories to inspire more river restorations. The film #DamBusters follows Pao’s journey from her native Spain to France – the European cradle of river barrier removals – then Lithuania, Estonia and Finland. The most iconic river-freeing cases so far, ready to impress you.
