We want more space for wild nature and wildlife across Europe. A Europe where natural processes can shape our landscapes and give us the good things in life, such as health and wellbeing, wholesome food and clean air and water. We see a future where wild nature is recognised as a fundamental part of Europe’s heritage and an essential element in a modern, prosperous, and healthy society.

We all need water to survive. But without healthy rivers, lakes and wetlands, there is no water.

The sources of Europe’s water are protected under EU law – but many EU governments want to weaken the law. Together, we MUST stop this from happening.

The European Commission now wants you to have your say through its public consultation. This is your only chance to tell them to keep our water law strong.

We have prepared the response that will best ensure that the law is kept safe. To send this to the European Commission on your behalf, please fill in your details and click ‘ACT NOW’.

Thank you for supporting #ProtectWater!
