Symbolic cooperation for the ECDay in Rēzekne - Latvian trees, Estonian musicians and Russian cuisine
We were in the second of three Tree Planting action of the Programme, organized within the celebration campaign of European Cooperation Day 2013 on 10 September 2013.
"Young people from youth centres and Rēzekne High school, including guest-students from Portugal and Spain supported the action and planted 10 different species of trees in Vipinga Forest Park in Rēzekne, Latvia.
Whistles made of clay from all three countries were chosen as symbolic Programme’s souvenirs for the ECDay 2013. "
Project "Green Man" is co-organizer of the tree planting action also in Latvia.
"Action hosted the folk group „Maatasa” from Tartu (Estonia), which performed energetic Estonian folksongs and surprised participants of the action by performing a song in Latvian and song in Russian – in both languages of the other two participating countries of the Programme."
"As the third element of the action and to represent presence of Russia, real soļanka – Russian national soup was offered by representatives of the Russian song ensemble „Harmony” in national costumes. By having planted Latvian trees, listened Estonian music and tasted Russian soup all guests and participants of the action took home the best mood of the cooperation and neighbourhood."
