In July 15 – 21 the representative of Future society institute Migle Paskeviciute together with three young and initiative Lithuanians participated in the first stage of international Project „Bridge it!“. A creative camp in Pelci (Latvia) was organized, where the greatest attention was paid to the discussions about national identity, meaning of culture, political, social relations of neighbouring countries.

An intensive training session was carried out in the form of discussions, theatrical simulations and creative installations with the goal of analysing relevant topics of today. M.
