Danube Day 2018 in Bosnia & Herzegovina

If you’re aged 6-18 years and love your river, don’t miss the chance to enter this year’s Danube Art Master competition. The annual 14-country art extravaganza tasks children to create 3D artworks made from materials found by the riverside. Alternatively, you can make a 1-minute video on your ideas for sharing and protecting the Danube rivers.

For details on how to enter, see the website of Ekotim, organisers of the Bosnia-Herzegovina round of the contest. Creators of the best artworks go on to the international Danube Art Master final later in the year. Bosnia-Herzegovinia is one of the few countries that have won the overall title twice: in both 2014 and 2017! This year, it might be you! 

Also organised by Ekotim, children took part in guided visits to the spring of the River Bosna. The school trips helped foster a desire to consider and protect rivers and the wider Danube Basin. The children learned about the importance of water resources and why rivers need our protection. They also heard from experts on why maintaining a diverse range of plants and animals is crucial to the health of our environment.
