Workgroup D. Artificial Green Floating Islands
Tahir, Nuri Ali
The project aims at reducing the gap between the Eastern and Western part of the Danube River, regarding economic disparities and environmental problems. This gap can be reduced by introducing Artificial Green Floating Islands in the Danube region, with the following objectives: improvement of water quality using specific plants that purify the water to be used in agriculture, attraction of tourists to the less developed countries to make a profit, opening of new jobs for young and inexperienced people, creation for the local people of public places where they can get together and socialize. The introduction of the Artificial Green Floating Islands would also change how people and countries of the area perceive the Danube River turning it from a natural border into a centre for social interaction between different coastal states.
