DANUBE:FUTURE is a joint contribution of the Danube Rectors Conference and the Alps-Adriatic Conference, thus tapping one of the largest pools of institutionalized knowledge in the Danube River Basin.
The project will generate a knowledge base for the Danube River Basin enhancing sustainable development by adding a humanities and social studies perspective to current approaches to sustainability – which so far have often remained in the realm of sciences. The output will support the creation of green jobs and strengthen civil society organizations thus enabling the Danube River Basin countries to cope with the challenges of the future and take steps towards a more sustainable development of their economies.
DANUBE:FUTURE is coordinated by the Alpen-Adria Universität Klagenfurt and project leader Prof. Verena Winiwarter and co-coordinated by the University of Trieste, the University of Natural Resources and Life Sciences Vienna and the University of Novi Sad.
Together with DIAnet – Danube Initiative and Alps-Adriatic Network, a project of the University of Trieste funded by the European Social Fund, DANUBE:FUTURE organizes from 2013-2015 three international schools on the sustainable development of the Danube Region.
