Rios to Rivers is a US-american NGO that works in the protection of rivers through youth-focused experiential and educational cross-culture exchange programs, where highschool and bachelor students are empowered to become informed stewards and ambassadors for their rivers and the communities who depend on them.
Since 2013, Ríos to Rivers has been conducting international exchanges in South America and North America between youth who have been or could be effected by the construction of dams. When the largest dam removal in history takes place on the Klamath River in 2021, Ríos to Rivers will bring youth representatives from 21 river basins throughout the world to witness the removal and experience first-hand why functioning dams are being removed to restore the health of a river, fish populations, and the livelihoods of local communities. One of those watersheds could be yours! If you live by a threatened river and are politically engaged on the defense of it, please contact us.
