Dear friend of the GNF,

Surely you also like to cool down in a water body and enjoy the beautiful nature during these warm temperatures and sunny days. To make sure that this is still possible in the future, we are taking action against the negative effects of climate change.

 Udo Gattenlöhner

In a study on the topic of lakes and climate change, we summarize existing research results that are relevant for the changes in German waters. This data are supplemented by European and international approaches and measures to counteract changes in the long term.

After all, pure and unadulterated bathing fun cannot be taken for granted. By supporting us you can contribute to our work for national and international water protection within the framework of our Living Lakes network.

We hope you enjoy reading and wish you a wonderful summer season.

No microplastics in our water bodies

Thanks to the support of the Deutschland-Achter rowing team, we are developing effective measures to avoid small plastic particles. Especially for water sport enthusiasts, nature-oriented and clean water bodies are of great importance and motivation.

Flash study on lakes and climate change

How do water bodies react to temperature increases and dry periods? In particular smaller water bodies can provide valuable information to show the consequences of climate change.
