LLI-237 Creation of Healthy Lifestyle Network of Basketball Enthusiasts in Venta River Communities in Lithuania and Latvia (BVENTA)

This Project is jointly developed by the partners from Lithuania – Šiauliai region and Latvia – Kurzeme region. Communities in these regions are facing serious challenges of intensive depopulation, lack of employment, possibilities, skills, knowledge, deficient infrastructure and services. Therefore, this project is tackling such problems and is primarily designed to improve the living conditions of the targeted deprived communities in the regions.
Specifically, they main output of the Project is to create the cross-border network of the healthy lifestyle and basketball enthusiasts through the regular Venta River Basketball Tournaments and networking activities. Such experience sharing and sports activities will empower members of the selected six deprived communities in Lithuania and Latvia to participate more actively in the processes affecting their daily social life, and will build commitment and confidence in tackling their problems.
The communities participating in the project are located in the districts of Akmene, Lithuania and Saldus, Latvia that are bordering each other, and both having the same river Venta running through them. This symbolic natural connection will be used to facilitate broader knowledge exchange and cooperation initiatives in the field of healthy lifestyle and sports. There was very little cooperation in the area of sports and healthy lifestyle among these particular districts and communities over the years and the game of basketball – well admired and played in both countries – will become a new catalytic factor of bringing them
closer.
