Sign the petition to protect Glen Etive in Scotland

Glen Etive, in the Highlands of Scotland, is an area of significant cultural and social importance, well known by our varied supporters for its beautiful landscape. It is a popular amenity for walkers, climbers, cyclists, wildlife enthusiasts, anglers, outdoor swimmers, and the paddle sport community, but the River Etive is under threat from a number of hydropower schemes.

Our supporters have contacted us about the efforts by local people and the wider outdoor community to review and reverse the decision to approve three out of the seven proposed Glen Etive hydropower schemes. These schemes fall within designated areas for Wild Land, Wild Life and Natural Heritage.

We have written an open letter to councillors urging them to reverse their decision to approve these schemes.

*Please sign the petition* before the special planning meeting on 20th March and show your support to limit the number of these hydropower schemes and keep our wild rivers running free – remember, the energy may be renewable, but our rivers certainly are not.
