AQUA LIFE: Clean-up collectives in 10 border municipalities to mark the ECDay

On 5 October in the frame of the project „Water environment protection and green lifestyle measures development in Latvia and Russia border regions (AQUA LIFE)” 10 project partners organized clean-up collectives in Latvia and Russia. The aim of the clean-up collectives was to improve environmental condition of the public water bodies in the project partner’s territories. It also marked the European Cooperation Day 2013.

This cross-border event was organized on one day and started at 10.00 in Saturday morning for all partners. Schoolchildren and teachers, representatives from the local enterprises, municipalities and local inhabitants spent some hours cleaning coast lines and water surface from the leaves, branches and waste, hewing out shrubs, sawing branches and doing other necessary works to clean up water bodies.

After an active day spent together participants were able to enjoy warm snacks, hot tea and dainties, some were making soup or sausages on the fire. More than 500 participants took part in the clean-up collectives and all of them are satisfied with this work in their territories, because now there is more rivers, ponds and lakes in the border region of Latvia and Russia that are attractive to local inhabitants and tourists.

Memorable moments of the clean-ups:
