After a long day of workshops, kayaking, lectures, presentations, hikes and alternatives hunting it feels good to sit down in the grass, open a beer, lean onto your neighbour/friend/sympathy and watch a cool film about saving the Momma Earth in style. This is why we have joined forces with Kamp Koren, Kendal Mountain Festival and Bovec Outdoor Film Festival and put together 18 stunning films to make this a reality. We call it BRT 4 Film Festival. Full schedule below: See you on the grass 😉
The countdown is on! Just ONE WEEK until the start of what we hope will be the most action, knowledge and party-packed week we have ever pulled off. Let’s keep it brief; kayaking, hiking, swimming, discussions, lectures, presentations, workshops, direct action, flotilla, beer mile and a concert.

Company Sava hydro power plants wants to build up to 11 new big dams that would turn this symbolic river into a series of dead lakes. We rose paddles high and said loud no to these kind of plans and provided different ones: Instead of proposed dams government should […]
