Oh beautiful river heading towards the sea, what are you carrying hidden away? In this land of Hope and Glory where is the hope for our rivers? Recently published research shows we are having the dirtiest rivers in the union and not only this, ours are amongst the dirtiest in the whole of the EU. Why? Why are we inflicting this to our land, animals and people? And what are we doing about it??? Oh yes… after Brexit we will change the criteria and then our rivers will be cleaner. Who are you kidding? Clean up the mess you created, don’t waste any more time! Do it NOW, get it done!!!!


Compiled from artists responses to World Rivers Day, 27th September 2020.

World Rivers Day is a celebration of the world’s waterways. It highlights the many values of our rivers, strives to increase public awareness, and encourages the improved stewardship of all rivers around the world. Rivers in virtually every country face an array of threats, and only through our active involvement can we ensure their health in the years ahead.
