Background

The Danube, second longest river in Europe after the Volga, is the site of some of the earliest human cultures. It is a source of drinking water for about ten million people; and as “Corridor VII” of the European Union, it is an important transport route connecting the Black Sea with the industrial centres of Western Europe and with the Port of Rotterdam.

The overarching goal of the Blue Danube River Project is to build relationships among the youth of the Danube states and anchor the values of sustainability in them through common educational activities with special emphasis on the environmental, historical, sociological aspects of the Danube River.
