Danube day 2016

More than 1,000 Danube detectives at the Green Event Danube Day 2016!

This year's Danube Day also focused on environmental protection.

Thus, the Danube Day was organized according to the criteria of the Austrian Ecolabel for Green Events.

On June 13th, students between the ages of eight and twelve were able to embark on, an exciting search for clues. Various experimental stations, workshops, interactive information booths and lots of "Donau action" thrilled the guests. For the twelfth time, the Federal Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry, Environment and Water Management, the Federal Ministry of Transport, Innovation and Technology, Viadonau and the MA 31 Vienna Water invited visitors to the great Danube River Theme Day to the MuseumsQuartier Wien.

As a Green Event according to the criteria of the Austrian Ecolabel, many visitors used the campaign "Bring your bottle" and filled their reusable water bottles at the water bar of the MA 31 - water of Vienna.

The invitation as well as the communication with all participants took place digitally without much paperwork. The issued T-shirts were certified according to the ecological standard GOTS and all partners used equipment that they use several times a year - just to name a few of the criteria fulfilled.
