On Tuesday 13th August 2019, the Venta Regional Park was the venue of a fantastic event dedicated to disadvantaged people of different nationalities: citizens from Latvia and Lithuania, indeed, had the chance to canoeing together on the Venta river, discovering its hidden treasures and learning more about the importance of the Latvian-Lithuanian joint management of its ecosystem and natural resources.
The final stop of the river-tour is set in the Lithuanian village of Santekliai, where a public talk about cooperation between the two countries and the benefits of EU Cohesion policy took place.
Special attention was dedicated to the youth and employment opportunities for the local citizens. “DisCoVer-Discovering and canoeing on the Venta river” was a perfect occasion to unite different people, enjoy the natural wonders and get to know better what the European Union does at a local level!
