MY RHINE, MY STORY

Photo Competition

 

CONTEXT

Rivers contribute about 1 % of the total freshwater on the earth, of which a large portion is consumed for human use.  Covering an area of 185,000 sq.km, the Rhine river is one of the largest rivers in Europe, flowing through a length of 1,230 km. Many of Europe’s largest and most well known cities are situated along the banks of this river and as such the Rhine is often called ‘the highway for Europe’s freight’. 


Everyone who sees or lives within the Rhine basin has their own connection and story to tell about the area - and we are all eyes and ears for your experiences!  


Through one picture, and a maximum of 50 words, tell us your Rhine story which can be themed around its nature, flow, wildlife, ecosystems, environment or pollution.
