02.06.2018.
Short description: On 1st part of day of 02.05.2018. official delegations of all participating partnering municipalities – Rundāle (LV), Pakruojis (LT), Põhja-Pärnumaa (EE), Uggiate-Trevano (IT), Adelsdorf (DE), Ruaudin (FR), Swisloch (BY) participated international discussion: TWINNING=WINNING, highlighting existing experience of town twinning, presenting vary of twinning forms and sharing best existing praxis. New possible twinning events were discussed making basis for further cooperation. The discussion made excellent overview of diversity of twinning events and methods, as a way to foster citizens’ involvement in societal and democratic processes, thus decreasing the Euroscepticism and strengthening common sense of EU.


Meanwhile the representatives of Red-cross Italy Uggiate-Trevano committee had meeting with Red-cross Latvia Bauska committee sharing experience. Both participating parties found the meeting valuable.

At the same time culture collectives – folk dance collectives “Reketys” from Pakruojis (LT), “Laieldes” from Põhja-Pärnumaa (EE) and “Rundāle”, “Šurpu turpu”, “Madaras” from Rundāle (LV) participated creative workshop “Hand in hand” in Rundāle Palace Garden in order to create common performance for Rundāle Festival Concert, thus symbolizing unity of Europe, richness of diversity and multilingualism as opportunity.

03.05.2018.
The last day of Project was dedicated to project closing event – summary discussion. Delegations evaluated the Project activities and reached goals, discussed the gained experience.


 

As a result of the implemented project new project ideas have formed. During the mutual discussions between representatives of partnering municipalities and participating twinning associations new stable basis for further cooperation has been founded. New possible cooperation intentions have formed with Ruaudin (FR) and Adelsdorf (DE) twinning associations in level citizens-meet-citizens. New further international project intentions have formed by Uggiate-Trevano (IT) twinning association and Põhja-Pärnumaa Municipality.

But what is more important, this is already 3rd twinning event where Rundale Municipality is participating and it is very obviously to track the changes in opinions about twinning experience – at the beginning the formal forms of twinning were acceptable, but now more and more local citizens have made connections to other towns’ citizens and it has become citizens-meet-citizens form.

Even more, the mutual cooperation between three dancing collectives – “RUNDĀLE” (Rundāle, LV), “LAIELDES” (Põhja-Pärnumaa, EE), “REKETYS” (Pakruojis, LT) was formed during the first Europe for Citizens project realised by Rundāle Municipality on 2015. Since then all three folk dancing collectives each year have cooperated in joint concerts (Halinga-EE, Rundāle-LV, Uggiate-Trevano-IT) and this cooperation have grown in friendship. Such kind of cooperation shows the great impact of small-scale cooperation projects presenting how formal cooperation transforms into friendship between citizens from different countries.
