The Riga Summerschool this July was a great success. YEPP thanks YLPP, its Latvian Member Organization and host for excellent organization, a fascinating topic, great hospitality, and commitment to the exchanges so central to YEPP’s purpose.
Not only did our Latvian friends arrange for excellent speakers they also organized industrial visits to Latvian dairy factories to provide extra points for discussion of recovery from crisis. They gave YEPP a careful mix of academic, political, and economic expertise which pushed the interaction to a high level. This created an excellent basis for participants to present those efforts which were going on in their own countries during sharing of best practice session.
Last but not least, the Summerschool was blessed with good atmosphere and pleasant surroundings in taking place partly in Riga and partly in Jurmala.
