It is World River Day today and Aoos/Vjosa river has every reason to celebrate, since on Friday, September 25, the President of Albania, Ilir Meta, spoke out in favor of the establishment of a national park in Vjosa and against the hydropower dam projects!
Following his statement, the Prime Minister of Albania, Edi Rama, announced to the media that he also is in favor of the establishment of a Vjosa National Park and that the Kalivaç dam has been rejected by the Ministry of Environment!
Aoos/Vjosa continues to be an untamed and free-flowing river and Greece along with Albania have the unique opportunity to promote it as a best practice example of wild free-flowing rivers throughout Europe!
