This is resulting in a brain-drain of well-educated women. This project is intended to highlight how modern and diverse the situation for women can be in rural areas and what opportunities for the future are on offer in the Wachau-Dunkelsteinerwald region.

Start: Raising awareness of the Wachau Cultural Landscape

The Wachau region was inscribed in the UNESCO list of World Heritage sites as a continuing cultural landscape in 2000.
