In 2021, the Dam Removal Europe International Seminar was organized by WWF (Germany, Austria and Switzerland), Dam Removal Europe partners, and in cooperation with regional and international partners. The event was a true success– over the four days of conference, 931 attendees joined (over 400 attendees each day) from 59 countries around the world. The attendees came from diverse backgrounds, and represented many different fields including research, nature conservation, engineering and water management, public administration, fisheries, education, PR, hydropower, tourism and even lawyers.
During the conference, we learned from experiences all over Europe, discussed the ecological, economic and social benefits of dam removal, showed the restoration potentials for (pre-)alpine regions, and outlined the necessary framework conditions for dam removal.
