21 July 2020: 1000th day of the revision process of the WFD! It is time for the European Commission to conclude this debate!


July 21 will mark the 1,000th day since the launch of the independent review of our water legislation the Water Framework Directive.

From now until the beginning of July, European citizens, through the “Protectwater” campaign, are called upon to mobilise once again with the Commission to stop an endless debate on possible changes that could weaken this unique law. Write personally, via a form to the European Commission to express to it in your own words this incomprehension and the urgent need to take a decision to protect our rivers in Europe. The form allows you to send a message from your own mailbox directly to Virginijus Sinkevičius, European Commissioner for Environment, Oceans and Fisheries, and Frans Timmermans, Executive Vice-President.

We have already shown that citizens can mobilise in numbers (375,386 to be precise! with the public consultation). Now write personal and authentic messages, whether it is a story about your river, or why you took part in the public consultation, etc.
