Get active for a cleaner Danube!
Danube Day 2017 is a celebration of cleaner, safer rivers following 23 years of ground-breaking international cooperation. Riverside festivals, public meetings and fun, educational events pay tribute to the Danube rivers, their peoples and the progress being made. Saturday 24th June saw children's events in Budapest and in Mosty u Jablunkova in the Czech Republic; and community festivities in Županja, Croatia, and Baykal in Bulgaria. Today, it's the turn of Bavaria to mark the day with activities that inspire the very youngest Danubites to care for their rivers. 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.
How people use, enjoy and cooperate over their rivers will be directly affected by the events of Danube Day 2017. There's still time to join in and help make the decisions that affect your river.
