Discover our “Travel Guide for a River“, an outcome of this creative and inspiring week.


The Berlin River Camp 2016 was a transnational meeting for water conservation organised by the Youth Network for River Action, in collaboration with our international partners. During one week, participants from all over Europe gathered in the German capital to experience and learn about water in the city.

The participants had the chance to discover and apply up-to-date ways of sensing water in the city via group work on water policy and digital mapping, enjoy intercultural activities and a local Big Jump, and discuss their ideas with water experts from politics, administration and civil society.
