After over two years of campaigning by 130 organisations, the European Commission has declared that the EU's strong water legislation--the EU Water Framework Directive--will not be opened for revision.
This final decision comes six months after the law was declared to be 'fit for purpose' following a two-year evaluation. Over this process, more than 375,000 citizens demanded that the law be maintained in its current form and better implemented by their national governments.
We would not have been able to achieve this without you! Your voice was heard. Your say had an impact. On behalf of the Living Rivers Europe coalition, our warmest thanks for your passionate support.
We are encouraging engaged citizens to send their thanks to Commissioner Sinkevičius for standing up for nature through this decision!
