For one month, several organizations joined to reveal the potential within the Tua Valley. The natural landscape, the river, as well as regional products, radical and water sports that are possible to enhance. On each Saturday of May we have taken recovering works of the line, walk along it, discussed the economic potential of this region, made degustations of wine, olive oils and other local products, we have watched movies, and we went down the river to say NO to the dam.
We are united to Save the Tua and Protect the Douro. May, month for the Tua is a joint organization of the following entities:
Associação Juvenil Amigos do Cáster
Clube de Canoagem de Águas Bravas de Portugal
Escola Profissional de Agricultura e Desenvolvimento Rural de Carvalhais/Mirandela

The mission of Platform Save the Tua is to protect the Tua Valley by raising awareness about the inconsistencies of the Foz Tua dam, which is being constructed in one of the most beautiful rivers in Portugal, with the values abided by Unesco World Heritage nomination of the Alto Douro Wine Region. We demand for this construction to stop immediately before a natural heritage spot of a high ecological, social and economic value and part of our legacy and Portuguese identity and culture suffers irreversible damages.
