Event description
Join us for the London premiere of Riverwoods and help raise funds for the restoration of Scotland's river catchments

About this event

The European Nature Trust is pleased to invite you to the London premiere of Riverwoods!

Riverwoods is a multimedia campaign from SCOTLAND: The Big Picture. This feature length documentary shines a light on the perilous state of wild salmon populations and the degraded river catchments we have come to accept as normal. Shot across multiple locations in Europe, Riverwoods investigates how wild rivers should look, and how Scotland’s rivers have been diminished.

Salmon and rivers need our support

We all depend on rivers. They provide the water we drink; they transport the nutrients that people and wildlife alike need; their flows provide habitats and sustain ecosystems. Yet all is not well. In Scotland – where 97 per cent of native woodland has been lost – many riverbanks are deforested.

Threatened by changes at sea and on land, Scotland’s Atlantic salmon are now suffering from the degradation of river catchments. We’ve witnessed a decline of Atlantic salmon numbers by 70 per cent within the last 50 years. With climate change, rivers are becoming too hot. Our deforested riverbanks fail to provide the cooling shade that young salmon need to grow and survive. Scientists from Marine Scotland have found that just 35% of rivers in Scotland have adequate tree cover for salmon survival. We must get trees back on riverbanks, and fast.

Why should you and your business attend?

Every one of us can make a difference. By purchasing tickets, you can support a growing movement for river restoration, you can help get trees back on our waterways, and protect salmon populations.

100% of the proceeds raised from ticket sales will be directed to projects that help repair and restore the most affected river catchments in Scotland. By attending the premiere you can help restore natural flows; contribute to tree planting initiatives in river catchments; and help kickstart wildlife conservation projects (including beaver reintroduction efforts) to improve the ecological condition of our waterways.

The evening will bring together key stakeholders in conservation, landowners. business leaders, environmental entrepreneurs, celebrities and more. In what promises to be an unforgettable evening, the premiere will be followed by dinner, drinks and a party, while serving as a crucial fundraising and networking platform.

For more information on the event and our conservation work, please explore The European Nature Trust's website here.

The Sponsors

Joining us in our vision for restored and thriving river catchments, the evening has been made possible by our sponsors Thomas Sabo and Newcore Capital. Through the sponsorship, all proceeds from ticket sales will be able to be donated to the most effective river restoration projects.
