The Last Days of Tua | The Last Down-River (Ricardo Inverno)
This is the story of Ricardo Inverno, president of the Águas Bravas de Portugal Canoeing Club. Like so many others, he will lose one of the best regions for mountain and white water sports in Europe so the Foz Tua dam can be built, a dam that nobody wants but everybody will have to pay for.
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.
