During the event, we will introduce participants to the Summer Solstice traditions, will have plays and dances together with guests, will sing songs and learn to make Latvian national bookmarks at creative workshops, and will also enjoy Latvian treats!
Also, we will discuss the current topics and generate future cooperation opportunities together with representatives of member organizations of the Cross-Sectoral Dialogue Platform.
