The Danube--a European Cultural Route. Report of the European Teachers' Seminar (66th, Donaueschingen, Germany, November 21-26, 1994).
Scheichl, Andrea
The 66th Council of Europe Teacher's Seminar focused on the Danube as actual and symbolic thoroughfare of European culture and ways to use it for teaching purposes. Presentations included: "Introductory Talk on 'The Danube'" (Andrea Scheichl); "The Danube, with Particular Reference to the Austrian Section" (Hans Trsek); "The Danube as a Commercial Thoroughfare and Economic Factor through the Ages" (Roman Sandgruber); "Europe between Visions of a Central European State and Plans for a Danube Federation (Klaus Kock); "The Art and Culture of Religious Institutions, as Exemplified by Klosterneuburg Abbey" (Karl Holubar); and "The Hungarian School System--the German School in Budapest" (Iren Rab), as well as a report on the participants' excursion to the Upper Danube. Participants divided into groups to explore five subjects: the features shared by and differences between the Danube and other large European rivers; the natural environment, its protection and preservation as well as possible use for educational purposes and tourism; the concept of "Europe" and the Danube as an element that binds Europe together; tourism and cultural transfer; and the feasibility of a Danube festival. A list of participants is appended. (ND)
