Boat in the Danube to promote Territorial Cooperation – Budapest (Hungary), September 21, 2012

In the framework of the European Cooperation Day, a boat in the Danube River in Budapest will hold on the 21st September a symbolic event focused on European Territorial Cooperation (ETC) and the South East Europe Programme (SEE). This event will be open to general public, joining at the same time the recreational aspect to the informative one, and it will include an exhibition of SEE projects and a press conference addressed to local media.

The idea of renting a boat in the Danube River comes from the fact that Danube is one of the best symbols of the SEE programme as an example of something uniting countries across the borders in one of the most diverse and complex transnational areas of the EU. Moreover, the European Commission has launched the Danube Strategy (www.danube-region.eu) as an opportunity to boost the development of the Danube Region.

On the other hand, the involvement of media will make the event arrive to a broader audience than the stakeholders and project partners, trying in this way to make aware to citizens of Territorial Coopperation in general and the South East Europe Programme in particular.
