The purpose of the event was to provide young people with information about opportunities to spend their free time, strengthen their cooperation, self-expression abilities by participating in the Eurodesk campaign "Time To Move", learn more about what opportunities are offered to young people in the local, regional and international environment.We found out about project possibilities, developed ideas for the realization of our project. We learned this new thing about Europe, we played breakout games around Riga and found out how far is Latvia to others countries.The main conclusion - DON'T BE AFRAID TO DO!

Why does it correspond to the thematic category:

During this event, young people wrote project sufficiency claims for municipal funding for their initiative and then 6 ideas for each funding (500 EUR) for the realization of their ideas. Currently, the ideas of young people are already being implemented.Thus, young people really see that their voice matters and that they are able to influence events in our municipality.

The impact the initiative had on young people and the local community:

Youngsters THEMSELVES have come up with ideas with which they want to change, solve or offer something in the region and have written the project specifications THEMSELVES, have received financial support THEMSELVES and realize THEMSELVES idea. It is the moment when they absolutely feel that they do not need to work in the municipality to influence something, but anyone can be a part of something big or create something big themselves.

How it ensured the visibility and promotion of Eurodesk:
