Rivers have sacred significance for humans. Every people has its own holy river. For me personally, it is the river Oster, which can, unfortunately, disappear soon. But to make this story interesting for you as well, I will also tell you about your rivers whose shores you were born and grew up on. Because your rivers can disappear, too. Every river is someone’s reflection and memory. And the state of each is a result of our actions or inaction, not just of climate change, as we often think to justify our actions. So let’s try to figure it out.
