Sustainable Greenways Tourism: A Comparison Of The East Coast Greenway (United States) And The Prague To Vienna Greenway (Czech Republic), Charles A. Flink Fasla, Daniel Mourek

Proceedings of the Fábos Conference on Landscape and Greenway Planning

The first Greenways in Central Europe began in the early 1990s inspired by the experiences of the Hudson River Valley Greenway as well as other American Greenway initiatives. The past 15 years of cooperation between the Prague-Vienna Greenways, the Hudson River Valley Greenway and the East Coast Greenway Alliance have shown how the different natural, socioeconomic, and political conditions on both sides of the Atlantic provide a rich store of experience that can be mutually beneficial. Thanks to this cooperation not only have European Greenways been successfully developed, but there are now Greenways linking people, places and ideas across borders ...

In this era of limited public resources, each project demonstrates a distinct and differing approach to leveraging a place’s assets with physical realities that, in combination, build a stronger community.

These projects are located in very different geographic regions in the eastern United States, from the rural, historic landscape of the Piedmont to the urban waterfront of southeastern Washington, D ...
