Celebrating cooperation between people, regions, and countries

We are eager to share our excitement about this year celebrations of the European Cooperation Day and 30 years of Interreg!

It all started with Hiking as antidepressant” discussion during the festival LAMPA on September 5 in Cesis, Latvia. The field experts and more that 1400 viewers online explored health benefits of hiking and amazing cross-border hiking routes that have been developed or are under construction in all three Baltic countries and in the neighbouring territory of Russia, Pskov region. For example, future hiking & cycling route Greenways Riga – Pskov will be completed in the second half of 2021.


Right after the conversation, together with 70 hikers we went for an inspirational LAMPA Interreg Hike along the scenic Gauja river. The next day more than 50 bravest went for a 30 km long adventure – Interreg 30 Anniversary hike. Watch the video to experience both hikes in just 2 minutes and get inspired to explore cross-border hiking routes yourself!

Our online quiz gathered 191 participants to answer 5 questions and discover who could they be in Latvian and Russian fairy tales! And the most popular folklore character in #latruscbc turned to be Latvian Zalktis (grass snake) and Russian Лиса (fox) – smart and technologically advanced, most interested in business development projects!
