Our intention is to put pressure on the body able to stop the construction of the dam (UNESCO) sending by email as much letters as possible (in each own name), of all supporters of the Tua, in the weeks before and during UNESCO meeting. The goal: 25.000 letters (email).
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.
