Danube Day 2018 / 2019 in Bosnia & Herzegovina

Planning is underway for Danube Day 2019. Details will be posted here in June. Read on for a summary of activities in 2018.

National NGO, Ekotim, hosted the Danube Art Master awards. In this annual competition, young people are challenged to think about why their rivers are important and convey their environmental messages in artworks and videos. Exciting prizes were awarded to the best artworks, with the first place winner receiving a tablet computer and the opportunity to go on to the international final later this year.

Ekotim also led guided school trips to the spring of the Bosna river. Learning about conserving water resources and the importance of maintaining wildlife diversity, the visits fostered a desire to protect rivers and the wider Danube Basin.
