Danube Day 2016

 

Get active!

Danube Day 2016 is a celebration of cleaner, safer rivers following 22 years of international cooperation. Riverside festivals, public meetings and fun, educational events will pay tribute to the Danube rivers, its peoples and the progress that has been made. Danube Day strengthens our "Danube solidarity" highlighting that, in spite of our different cultures and histories, we have a shared desire and responsibility to protect our precious resource.

How people use, enjoy and cooperate over the Danube rivers will be directly affected by the events of Danube Day 2016. Join in and help make the decisions that affect your river.
