River Action: The Water School
Goldman Prize winner and world-renowned hydrologist Michal Kravcik speaks about how he organised 24 villages to prevent the damming of the river Torysa in Slovakia, and how his NGO “People and Water” has developed a unique model of river guardianship based on democratic local communities taking ownership over water management and governance.
This event is part of the Guardians of the River online course, offered by Advaya and Guardians Worldwide.
