[repost] Dam dreams and river rewilding: Ideals in dispute
This event is organised by the Riverhood and River Commons research projects coordinated, among others, by two NEWAVE network members: Prof. Jeroen Vos and Prof. Rutgerd Boelens. See the original post here.
Are we entering a new era of river governance in Europe, with a revolutionary shift from dam construction to dam removal? What ideals are behind dam dreams and river rewilding? In how far are these ideals contested? An afternoon of discussion and dialogue.
