This is a co-operation project of the residents of these neighbourhoods, and the aim of the project is to help people learn more about Riga, including about the lesser-known parts of the city. The guides on the bus will be local residents from Mangaļsala, Vecmīlgrāvis, Sarkandaugava, Bolderāja. The maximum number of participants – 47. To apply, write to firstname.lastname@example.org or telephone 28204051.

Active Neighbourhoods is a series of events that make living in a city more inspiring and foster a sense of belonging and responsibility for the area we live in. Activities proposed and implemented by residents of Riga continue throughout 2014 in various neighbourhoods of the city. These include tours of the area planned and guided by locals, artistic meetings en plein air, photography campaigns, celebrations, festivals, lectures and discussions, which all centre on people and their infinite wish to invent and create something new, receive guests and have a great time with them.
