Water of the Alps
From a drop to a stream, a lake, a river and down to the sea… Water is the source of life and a big part of water in Europe comes from the Alps. Did you know that every year Alpine rivers provide an amazing average of 200 billion m³ of water to millions of people in the surrounding areas, hundreds of miles beyond the perimeter of the Alpine Convention?
For the 2017 edition of the Alpine Convention photo contest, we were looking for pictures of Water in the Alps – be it frozen or running, too much water or too little.
Thanks to everyone who sent us pictures!
