From the Czech Republic to the North Sea, the longest open-air pool will be opened by ten thousand people at the first International Elbe Swim Day

Hamburg, 10 July 2002
Next Sunday, July 14, more than 10,000 people will swim in the Elbe – which until recently had the dubious honor of being the dirtiest river in Europe. The first International Elbe Swim Day was initiated by the Deutsche Umwelthilfe e.V. and the Gruner + Jahr printing and publishing house as part of their Living Elbe (Lebendige Elbe) project. The project which was started five years ago has as its objective the improved cooperation between some 400 organizations active on the Elbe, the development of a uniform protection concept for the river from the source to the mouth and the promotion of sustained development of the Elbe region.
