Project Duration: 15.06.2020 - 14.06.2022
Project ERDF Financing: 199.527,67
Project call: 3rd call
Population of small towns of Latvia – Lithuania cross border area have been on decline over the last years, thereby also a number of children who want to engage in sports. The reason for this is the lack of infrastructure or equipment, or simply sporting activities have not been organized there. The project will create an international network of cycling enthusiasts for children. Three Līvāni-Utena Bicycle Cup tournaments will be organized. These experience-sharing and sporting activities will enable members of the 8 deprived communities in Lithuania and Latvia to become more involved in the processes affecting their daily lives, and to provide more determination and confidence in solving their problems. Also, during the project there will also be purchased 14 equipped bicycles and 1,8 km multi-functional cycling and sports track in Grīva forest near Līvāni created for cycling. Municipalities involved in the project are Līvāni, Jēkabpils, Preiļi and Aknīste in Latvia and Utena, Ignalina and Zarasai in Lithuania, which are very close to each other. In recent years, there has been little cooperation between communities of these towns on healthy lifestyle and sports, and cycling will be a new stimulus that will bring them closer together.
