On 29 June 2013, the 14 countries of the Danube Basin jointly celebrate one of Europe’s greatest river systems and the people and wildlife that rely on it. It is the celebration of a cleaner, safer river. 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. “Get active for the sturgeons” is the motto of the Danube Day 2013.
You can watch a video message to the people of the Danube Basin from Johannes Hahn, EU Commissioner for Rural Development, on the INFOREGIO website, or find out more about Danube Day on the official Danube Day 2013 website.
