The Dnipro River is Europe’s second longest river that flows through the heartland of Russia, Belarus, and Ukraine. For many centuries, it has played a vital role in the historical, cultural, religious and economic development of the vast region. The importance of the Dnipro is hardly to describe from an historical perspective. Many scientists try to overcome the river’s environmental degradation, and outline a strategy to rehabilitate and preserve the Dnipro’s unique biodiversity. The Dnipro River has to be studied from the point of view of philosophical concepts, from numerous intellectual traditions, bridging East and West, North and South. The harmonious coexistence of nature and society should be found.
