In this context, the Association for Cross-border Cooperation "Lower Danube Euroregion” (ACTEDJ) carried out during June-August 2018 an information campaign on the activity and results of cooperation in the Euroregion, which resulted in an event on 20th August meant to capture in images the opportunities and challenges that the Danube, a source of development in the region, creates.

The event included an exhibition on "Danube - Opportunities and Challenges", presentations of ACTEDJ projects and a networking session.

GREEN DANUBE project was presented by ACTEDJ as a successful initiative in promoting a more environmentally friendly, safe and balanced inland waterway transport system. The main activities and results of the project were promoted, focusing on the identified innovative solutions, through the Campaign of measurements, the Greening Technologies and Best practices Inventory and Workshops, the Policy Agenda and last, but not least, the transnational campaign within the Environmental Information Centres and the opportunity it brings for Galati.  


The opening event brought together 25 participants, 30 exhibited works, being able to translate into pictures the opportunities presented by the Danube River, whether natural, touristic or industrial. The representatives of civil society and the private sector in Galati, exchanged views on actions to involve civil society in community development projects.
