The GRÜNE LIGA Federal Contact Point Water has been a member of the EEB's Water Working Group for over 20 years and is a founding member of both the Water Working Group of the Forum Environment and Development and the "Living Lakes Germany" network.
Michael Bender represents the GRÜNE LIGA as an observer at the International Commission for the Protection of the Elbe (IKSE).
In 2021, the cooperation between the GRÜNE LIGA and the Living Rivers Foundation was intensified and a joint office was established at the federal association.
Together with the GRÜNE LIGA Berlin, we were active in the Aktionsnetz Kleingewässer Berlin, in 2022.
Since January 2023, the GRÜNE LIGA Berlin e.V. is partner in the pilot project Wassernetz Berlin. We will organise 24 dialogues at water over 3 years (around 8 per year) to raise awareness of the public on the issues faced by water bodies and offer training in their management (biodiversity, physical and chemical status, etc.), as well as helping our partners in the project to prepare for the enhancement and restoration measures that will be implemented in the framework of this pilot project. You can find the schedule of dialogs on our events page.
On the European level, the GRÜNE LIGA e.V. is also member of the European Water Movement. The EWM aims at reinforcing the recognition of water as a commons and as a fundamental universal right.
On a global level, the GRÜNE LIGA e.V. is also involved in the People's Water Forum, a coordinating space for Water Justice Movements around the world.

Dialogue at the Packereigraben, Berlin-Reinickendorf
Wednesday, 14 June 2023
Meeting point: 11 am S-Bf. Waidmannslust | Duration: 11 am - 2 pm
At the 2nd dialogue at the Packereigraben we will continue our chemical-physical measurements and look for small aquatic animals again. As at the last dialogue in April, the chemical-physical analysis will cover pH, dissolved oxygen, total phosphorus concentration, ammonium, nitrate and nitrite, water hardness and copper value.
Comparing our observations between April and June will give us an idea of how conditions have developed. Observing small animals under the binocular will allow us to identify developments in specific animal populations. Together with you, we would like to discuss further steps for the ecological improvement of the watercourse based on the observations. In addition, we will reintroduce gravel into the watercourse.
