Planning is underway for Danube Day 2017. Details will be posted here in the spring. Read on for a summary of activities in 2016.
The Drava in Osijek provided the backdrop for Danube Day 2016. Ministries, institutions, local and regional government, enterprise and interested parties marked the day by promoting sustainable river management. Choirs and folk groups entertained the public with traditional songs and dance. Children discovered what could be found in a single water droplet at a mobile laboratory and learned why rivers are so vital.
A state educational campaign also brought hands-on water science road-shows to schools and public events across the country.
Events complemented a 'Month of Rivers' campaign in Županja, Zagreb, Slavonski Brod and Sisak. Running from Sava Day to Danube Day, the events included summer fairs featuring traditional crafts, cuisine and river-related innovation and sport.
