Interreg V-A — Estonia–Latvia

On November 7, in Zvejniekciems, Saulkrasti municipality in Latvia, in cooperation with the Vidzeme Planning Region, we are organizing a workshop - improving the accessibility of "Mežtaka" and "Jūrtaka". These hiking trails should be accessible and safe not only for every active, nature-loving person, but also for people with functional disabilities, families with small children, and senior citizens. The seminar brought together representatives of state and local government institutions, tourism specialists, guides, representatives of non-governmental organizations and other interested parties.
The aim of the workshop was to introduce the project #AccessibleHikingTrails and the solutions planned in it to promote accessibility in Mežtaka and Jurtaka, as well as to deepen the participants' knowledge of universal design, as well as to provide an insight into the practical experience gained in Europe for improving accessibility in nature trails and places of interest. Foreign experts from Norway, Italy, Great Britain and Estonia told about the European experience.
After the seminar on Novemver 7, the participants went for an evening hike along the sea in Saulkrasti.
The next day, November 8, we went on a hike from Lilaste to Carnikava.
