On 28 March 2018, the CBSS Secretariat participated in the campaign “Back to School 2018” in Latvia ahead of this year’s Europe Day celebrations in May.
During visits to the Riga 46st High School and Riga Rīnūži High School, Zane Šime, Communication & Research Coordinator, presented the CBSS work, the Baltic 2030 Action Plan and the projects ‘Baltic TRAM’ and ‘Baltic Science Network’. Doing so, the high school students got a glimpse into how the EU is engaged in one of the key governance forums of the Baltic Sea Region, as well as recent developments of two multilateral science and research initiatives funded by the EU and endorsed by the CBSS.
In order to support high school pupils interested in writing their research papers on topics related to the Council, the CBSS Secretariat presented to both schools a set of hard copies of publications such as Multi-Level Governance of Innovation and Smart Specialisation, the 52 Degrees And Above Travel Guide, the Human Trafficking Round-up Reports from 2013 & 2016, and the study on Energy Efficiency in the Baltic Sea Region.
The campaign “Back to School 2018” (Atpakaļ uz skolu 2018 – in Latvian) in Latvia is organised by the Representation of the European Commission to Latvia in cooperation with the youth organisation “Club ‘House’ – Youth for United Europe”.
