The Students for Rivers Camp (SRC) is the kick-off event of the Balkan River Defence's (BRD) River Intellectuals Network. It will be a week-long gathering of students who love nature and want to protect it by using their brains. Whether you just started your Bachelor thesis or are about to finish your PhD, whether you study law or engineering, ecology or economics, during this camp you will have a chance to connect to like-minded people and learn how your research or study project can contribute to saving the last wild rivers of Europe. The Free Rivers Fund is a partner organisation of the SRC. We are looking for students from all over Europe and the Balkans to apply for the camp. The application is now open!
The first Students for Rivers Camp July 7 – 13, 2019
From July 7-13, 2019, Kamp Koren in Kobarid, Slovenia will be the playground for 30 students from the Balkans and the rest of Europe to come together for the Students for Rivers Camp (SRC). They will gather to learn about the background of hydropower development, the value of free flowing rivers and the opportunities to address these challenges through research. The week will be packed with lectures and workshops from experts in various fields of river conservation. Students will learn with each other and from each other and get their hands dirty by creating their own initiatives. The highlight will be a two-day River Experience where the group will float down the Soca River in rafts, packrafts, kayaks and on SUPs, learning through immersion about all the life and livelihood that the river provides.
