DANUBE DAY 2012: GET ACTIVE FOR THE RIVERS!
Danube Day is a celebration of a cleaner, safer river following 18 years of international cooperation. Huge festivals on the banks of the rivers; public meetings and fun, educational events 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 and enjoy the Danube rivers in future years will be directly affected by the events of Danube Day. Join in and help make the decisions that affect your river.
