International Day of Action against dams on March 14th

There is only a German version of the press release, short abstract:

The International Day of Action for rivers and against dams annually falls on March 14th. Watercraft is a renewable but not unequivocal a green and sustainable source of energy. The structures and ecosystems of rivers are often irreversibly modified. Some rivers are more or less permanently impassable for fish and other animals. Reservoirs can become a source for greenhouse gases. Researchers from IGB investigate the human impact on freshwater ecosystems and biodiversity.
