Last week our partners from Norway, Agder, had a speech at the important Latgale congress in Latvia on a topic of public participation, where our project NEUEYT was featured related to youth participation and democracy. The congress takes place every 5 year and is an important event to discuss the development of the Latgale region. NEUEYT was presented as a “best-practice”-example of public participation.

You can check the event program here.

The congress was opened by the president of Latvia the day before . Agder are partners with the region on an economical development program and they contribute with expertise on entrepreneurship. The event was visited by mayors and decision makers from the Latgale- region, and we are glad that they had a chance to hear more about our project and the initiatives. Thumbs up for our partners from Norway!
