German/Austrian Group – Setting the theme

In the first session we discussed what word we believe best represents the Danube and its inhabitants, for the purpose of the upcoming UnConference. After a brief weighing up of the words ’empathy’ and ‘curiosity’, we elected to go with the latter because of its all encompassing nature and general summary of why we all chose the Danube stream of the Global Citizenship Programme. We also observed that curiosity involves a degree of empathy towards the subject investigated and was therefore most appropriate. Additionally, we noted that the most important aspect for us was the diverse essence of the ‘Danubian Cocktail’ from which we are about to sip and discussed the paradoxes of the Danube.
