A civic education seminar will be held

The Civic Alliance - Latvia continues co-operation with the Cadet Force and Information Centre to implement the “Politically Active Citizen” lesson within the framework of the National Defence Training.

In order to prepare teachers (cadets) and representatives of civil society organisations who will go to schools to educate young people about civic participation, training will take place on August 25 at the National Defence Academy of Latvia.

During the training, Ieva Bērziņa, a leading researcher at the Security and Strategic Research Centre of the National Defence Academy of Latvia, will give a lecture on patriotism, while Kristīne Zonberga, Director of the Civic Alliance - Latvia, will talk about civic participation.
