Intercultural meetup

Meetup gathered young people of various backgrounds and countries of origin. They all share the same situation of being in Latvia at the moment for uncertain period of time. Lacking communication with local youth is the main concern that builds the walls between locals and newcomers.

As there is not much of local people interested to share their experiences, cultural insights and language tips. The newcomers from other regions are missing the chance to get included in the social life of Latvia. Meetup involved games and energizers with an aim to get to know more about Latvia and the local society. People were given small group tasks to talk about, brainstorm and suggest the further steps for ice breaking and involving Latvian youth in common activities with youth from other regions for the promotion of idea that youth work and non formal activities are very valuable and useful tool to boost the intercultural understanding and create new friendships.
