Protect Water

Europe’s waters are protected under EU law – but many governments now want to weaken the law

Together, we MUST stop this from happening

 

We all need water to survive - yet 60% of Europe’s rivers, streams, lakes and wetlands are not healthy, and the future of salmon and trout is severely threatened. For generations we have destroyed and polluted our rivers, and used too much water irresponsibly.

EU water law protects our waters, but governments now want to weaken it. Act NOW: tell the European Commission to keep the law strong through its public consultation - your only chance to tell them to keep our water laws fit for purpose.

As part of a European-wide #ProtectWater campaign, we have prepared responses that will best ensure the law is kept safe. To send this to the Commission on your behalf, please fill in your details below and click ‘ACT NOW.

According to the latest data, 60% of Europe’s rivers, streams, lakes and wetlands are not healthy. For generations we have destroyed and polluted them, and used too much water irresponsibly.

If we continue in this way, it will affect everything - from small things in our day-to-day lives we take for granted, to keeping entire industries going. It will also affect all the countless species that need these ecosystems to survive.

The EU water law protects our water sources, but governments now want to weaken it. Act NOW: tell the European Commission to keep the law strong!
