“PROMO-MED”: Promoting Silver Tourism through a MED-Diet Seminar and Workshop

The event combined a seminar about Agro-food and tourism sector and an Interactive Q&A debate among the participants. Following, there was a workshop called “Cooking with Med Products – A New Chemistry” where traditional chefs explained the benefits of the Mediterranean ingredients in the preparation of Med recipes and they will also cook certain plates live, in cooperation with the participants, following the Covid-19 safety regulation guidelines.

Cooperation as a driver for sustainable development

Our former volunteer Giuseppe Macca presented this CEA with the idea of promoting the concept of territorial cooperation and its Interreg programs and link it with the idea of a sustainable future, not only from an environmental perspective but also from a social one. The event was thought to be blended physical and digital to reach the local community and the global one.

Bringer Europe Closer to Nature

The goal of this activity was to spread the message of the EU Cohesion Policy in the areas of nature and wildlife citizens passionate about nature and local schools. The quiz covered topics such as nature conservation projects funded by the EU, protected species under the Habitats Directive, and ways citizens can get involved with environmental issues in the EU, e.g. Freiwillige Ökologisches Jahr (Voluntary Ecological Year). The goal of the quiz was to make people aware of the role of the Cohesion Policy in projects that combat climate change, protect nature, and promote biodiversity.

Youth for Future

Children and Representatives from 20 different youth organizations from Lithuania and Latvia took part in this workshop in Balsiai Summer Camp to create a network of youth who will become ambassadors of Interreg in Akmene District and in Latvia Auce District.
