About us

Our mission

“Time for the Oder” is an international partnership of three river alliances of civil society organizations. We advocate the permanent protection of the Oder and its catchment area for the citizens of the Czech Republic, Germany, Poland and Europe. We oppose the construction of the international waterway E30 and the Danube-Oder-Elbe Canal and advocate sustainable development in the Oder catchment area.
