    The proposed international project aims at developing a solid data body on environmental values of young people and their possible connection to the environmental history of their region. During the project, not only the methodology of measuring the environmental values will be adjusted and tested but also a policy material with research summary and recommendations on how to work with the results on the policy level will be developed. This material will be further communicated on the relevant policy level in the context of the involved countries (Czech Republic, Albania, Bulgaria, Slovenia, Serbia), located in the Danube river basin. We argue that the environmental values of young people can be worked upon when designing the educational, employment and environmental policies on both national and international level.

    The REFREsh Danube project aims to reduce the landfilled amount of municipal solid waste, which is a source of water and soil pollution, by its use as refuse-derived fuel in the cement industry of Novi Sad (Serbia). The main actors involved are Lafarge Beočin Cement Factory, Municipality of Novi Sad, JPK Čistoća (waste-management company) and experts from interdisciplinary fields. The project addresses societal challenges on climate change, air, water and soil pollution as well as using the municipal solid waste as an alternative energy source in response to H2020 and Europe 2020 Strategy.

    Agriculture is one of the major sources of pollution of the surface water and groundwater of the Danube River Basin. Lying at the intersection of three countries – Hungary, Slovenia and Croatia, together with its transboundary groundwater body, the Mura River Basin represents a challenging pilot area with extensive agriculture. This project aims to reduce agricultural water pollution in the Mura River Basin by introducing low-input sustainable agriculture. The project will: (a) consolidate expert knowledge on low-input sustainable agricultural practices suitable for the Mura River Basin; (b) develop guidelines on the promotion of low-input agricultural practices and (c) promote their adoption by the legislatures of the three participating countries.
