Rollercoaster of events to protect last free flowing rivers of Europe shown in short films that were produced in the back seat of the van while driving from one location to the next one (or in bars).

Our third tour was a bit different. We travelled from south to north and focused more on direct action than on kayaking.
What happened was a month long voyage of teaming up with passionate locals and telling greedy governments and
individuals why we won’t let them destroy these beautiful rivers. Here is how our actions looked like.

The last river tour so far. No big events, no month long trip, just one river and one country, but a big mission – to stop 10 newly proposed dams on the Sava River.
