European Regional Development Fund
Interactive exhibition and game in the festival of Vrakuňa on 8. September 2019
European Cooperation Day shows the benefits of cooperation among regions by highlighting how projects co-funded by the European Union have helped improve people’s lives along the many borders within Europe and beyond.
This year the Interreg SKHU programme have chosen the region of Bratislava to show its citizens some of the awesome EU funded developments in the area. We arrived with an interactive exhibition and game to the annual festival of Vrakuňa on 8 September 2019. The visitors of the event could draw, write and colour on big panels, whose topics were related to the European Union. We also got the visitors familiar with the Danube Bike and boat project, which made sport-related developments in 30 municipalities in 5 Slovak and Hungarian regions along the Small and Moson Danube rivers. Other activities include reconstructed watermill in Jelka, new bike road of 2,2km in Vrakuňa and Kolárovo, relax zone in Vrakuňa, and new corso in Zálesie, and almost 30 new or reconstructed entry points to the Danube for boats (for example: kayaks).
During the day the Danube Islands projects – also financed from the Interreg SKHU programme – organized a duathlon for the visitors of the festival. They could freely use e-bikes and boats, which was very popular among the participants.
At the end of the activities we asked our players to stand as models for an instax photo, which was placed on our Photo wall. Our players could also enter a prize game, where the lucky winners could receive an intelligence health bracelet, which helps them track their physical activities throughout the day. Our winners are: Jozef Pavlov, Martin Koller, Eva Csomor, Rasto Lauko. Congratulations to them, and thank you all for playing with us.
Thank you for the cooperation of the Municipality of Vrakuňa for providing us a prominent place at the festival, where we could really reach out to the people of Vrakuňa.
