Vienna Declaration on Central and Eastern European Greenways

Recapturing a decade of the greenways development in Central and Eastern Europe and setting new goals for the upcoming decade”

Vienna, October 14, 2016

Greenways are multi-functional trails developed along natural corridors, rivers and canals, historical trade routes and abandoned railways. They link regions, tourist attractions and community initiatives, support sustainable tourism and recreation, promote healthy life-styles and non-motorized transport. They generate opportunities for improving quality of life and environment, revitalizing local economies, promoting local products, encouraging community-based enterprise and protecting unique natural, landscape and cultural assets in Central and Eastern Europe.

Bearing in mind the principles of the first 2006 Central and Eastern European Greenways Sopron Declaration,

Partners and supporters of greenways network development in Central and Eastern Europe declare the following:

1. We intent to work together in order to create a greenways network and cooperate with all insitutions and organizations that share Greenways philosophy.

2. Our priority is to support local people to build and revitalize trails for public benefit and natural corridors called Greenways in the countries and regions of Central and Eastern Europe.

3. We believe that Greenways help to preserve the uniqueness of the places and foster sustainable development improving the quality of life in urban and rural areas across the region.

4. Our main goals for the next decade are:

(a) streghtening and expanding greenways network and to link it with other existing European networks of trails, such us EuroVelo routes.

(b) raising political awareness on greenways on the national, regional and European level.

(c) promotion of greenways’ benefits for environment and climate, sustainable development, health, safety and accessibility as well as natural and cultural heritage preservation.

5. In order to achieve the above goals we intent to act as integral part of European organizations and institutions sharing similar goals and values, such as European Greenways Association EGWA, European Cyclists Federation ECF and others.
