Get active for a cleaner Danube!
Danube Day 2017 was a celebration of cleaner, safer rivers following 23 years of ground-breaking international cooperation. Riverside festivals, public meetings and fun, educational events paid tribute to the Danube rivers, their peoples and the progress being made. During the week of Danube Day, main festivities took place in Ukraine, Slovakia, Serbia, Romania, Moldova, Hungary, Germany, Croatia and Bulgaria. Slovenia, the Czech Republic, Bosnia-Herzegovina and Austria celebrated earlier in June and many of the country events extended into July. Such events strengthen our "Danube solidarity": in spite of different cultures and histories, we have a shared desire and responsibility to protect our precious resource.
