Danube Day 2018 in the Czech Republic

The Czech Republic celebrated Danube Day with an open day at the Water Research Institute in Prague. As part of the event, primary and secondary-aged children enjoyed water related activities, games and videos, learning about the Danube rivers and the vital importance of cooperation across the region.  

If you’re aged 6-18 years and love your rivers, don’t miss the chance to enter this year’s Danube Art Master
competition. The 14-country art extravaganza tasks children to create 3D artworks made from materials found by the river. Alternatively, you can make a 1-minute video on your ideas for sharing and protecting the Danube rivers. The Czech round of the competition is organised by the Ministry of the Environment. Creators of the best artworks will go on to the international Danube Art Master final later in the year.
