LLI-516 Mažeikiai-Saldus. Active and involved communities (Co-Active)

The objective of this project is to improve living conditions in deprived communities that are located in Mazeikiai and Saldus districts.
Living environment of both municipalities will be improved by building skate parks in Mazeikiai and Saldus and also implementing various educational activities for young people, seniors and all residents of Mazeikiai and Saldus during the project. This will create closer community links and encourage local residents to interact more with each other.
Educational activities will include training for young people on the prevention of harmful habits and the prevention of bullying, training for seniors on the promotion of physical activity and stress management and team building for all residents. Training for all groups first will start in Mazeikiai. After the end of trainings in Mazeikiai, the methodology of educational programs will be improved according to participant survey results. Afterwards, updated training program will be implemented in Saldus. Up to 165 people will participate in educational activities.
After the construction of skate parks in Mazeikiai and Saldus, the opening ceremonies of these parks will be organized, in which the residents of both project partners will participate. These opening ceremonies will include joint sports games, contests, skaters’ performances, short introduction of places where residents of Mazeikiai and Saldus districts can spend their free time, various team building games (teams will be mixed from Lithuanians and Latvians) and also clean up around the skate parks.
Project partners will develop new approaches and ideas on how to improve living conditions and the environment in both partners deprived communities and to increase community motivation to take part in social activities. Both project partners are close to each other and have the opportunity to collaborate better in different areas of the project, including working with disadvantaged communities. Community members and municipal workers implementing this project activity will have the opportunity to get to know each other better, make new connections, to find new opportunities to remove barriers for growth and change communities from deprived to prosperous.

Project LLI-516 Mažeikiai-Saldus. Active and involved communities (Co-Active) is fully implemented!

We are happy to announce that the Project LLI-516 Mažeikiai-Saldus. Active and involved communities (Co-Active) was fully and successfully implemented by the end of 2021. Just as it was planned.  Both Project Partners built Skate Parks in their municipalities (Saldus and Mažeikiai), and infrastructure is fully operational, and in fact, very popular among local communities, especially youth. Also, planned educational activities that included trainings for young people on the prevention of harmful habits and the prevention of bullying, training for seniors on the promotion of physical activity and stress management and team building for all residents, proved to be popular and public response and involvement was even better than anticipated.

We are happy to announce that the Project LLI-516 Mažeikiai-Saldus. Active and involved communities (Co-Active) was fully and successfully implemented by the end of 2021. Just as it was planned.  Both Project Partners built Skate Parks in their municipalities (Saldus and Mažeikiai), and infrastructure is fully operational, and in fact, very popular among local communities, especially youth. Also, planned educational activities that included trainings for young people on the prevention of harmful habits and the prevention of bullying, training for seniors on the promotion of physical activity and stress management and team building for all residents, proved to be popular and public response and involvement was even better than anticipated.

These small steps of cooperation, especially during a difficult time of Covid 19 pandemic, inspired more optimism for future and improved community spirit among residents in both municipalities. Both opening ceremonies of newly built or extended (in Saldus case) skate parks were organized, and local residents participated in joint sports games, contests, skaters’ performances.

Such fests always brings positivity and raises ideas for future cooperation among both municipalities, and local communities alike. Project partners highly likely will develop new approaches and ideas on how to further improve living conditions and the environment in both partners deprived communities and to increase community motivation to take part in social activities. Both project partners are close to each other and have the opportunity to collaborate better in different areas of the project, including working with disadvantaged communities. Community members and municipal workers during the Project had an opportunity to get to know each other better, make new connections, and discuss common challenges, that are in fact quite similar and characteristic to the border region.
