Mayors for Drinkable Rivers

A global network of mayors that works towards drinkable rivers

What

Global network “Mayors for Drinkable Rivers”

River basin network “Mayors for a Drinkable Meuse”

Why

We all share the same water and we all recognise our rivers as our common lifeline.

How

  • Network and learn on a global level: bi-annual gatherings and expert sessions.
  • Cooperate and act on a river basin level

A word from the Mayors

Boris Ravignon

Boris Ravignon

Mayor of Charleville-Mézières (France), co-founder Mayors for a Drinkable Meuse

“Cities along the Meuse like Charleville-Mézières have turned their backs on the Meuse for too long. We are now engaged in a process of reconciliation with our river. In this context, the network of “mayors for a drinkable Meuse” seems essential to us to share our ambitions and the means to achieve them.”

“Les villes mosanes comme Charleville-Mézières ont trop longtemps tourné le dos à la Meuse. Nous sommes aujourd’hui engagés dans une démarche de réconciliation avec notre fleuve. Dans ce contexte, le lancement d’un réseau de « maires pour une Meuse potable » nous apparait indispensable pour partager nos ambitions et les moyens d’y parvenir.”

Maxime Prévot

Maxime Prévot

Mayor of Namur, Belgium

“The confluence is the cradle of Namur, Capital of Wallonia. The Meuse is in the DNA of any citizen of Namur who stands alongside the river. Therefore, it’s essential to share experiences and to coordinate the pursuance of our efforts within the network ‘Mayors for a drinkable Meuse'”.

“Le confluent est le berceau de Namur, Capitale de la Wallonie. La Meuse fait partie de l’ADN des citoyens namurois qui la côtoient. Ainsi, il est primordial d’échanger nos expériences et de coordonner la poursuite de nos efforts grâce au Réseau ‘Maires pour une Meuse potable'”.

Wim Hillenaar

Wim Hillenaar

Mayor of Cuijk, Netherlands

“I support the network because it touches exactly the essence! The quality of our river water holds up the mirror to us. No matter how big the problem is, everyone can contribute to a drinkable river.”

“Je soutiens le réseau parce qu’il touche précisément à l’essentiel ! La qualité de l’eau reflète la relation avec nos rivières comme un miroir. De plus, quelle que soit l’ampleur du problème, tout le monde peut contribuer à rendre une rivière à boire”.
