European Cooperation day celebration in Biršonas completed

The first weekend of September, we took a scenic route through the Nemunas Loops Regional Park in Birštonas to celebrate European Cooperation Day. This year, we enjoyed the excellent weather and picturesque location together with over 200 participants from 16 towns in Lithuania (Vilnius, Kaunas, Alytus, Birštonas, Marijampolė, Druskininkai, Kalvarija, Garliava, Panevėžys, Klaipėda, Plungė, Šalčininkai, Širvintos, Lazdijai, Palanga, Prienai) as well as people from Riga, Białystok, Olsztyn, Giżycko, Warsaw, Sarajevo and Isfahan.

Through our shared effort, all together we walked over 2 800 kilometres which means we covered a distance similar to the one between Birštonas and Barcelona! At the end of the day, it was the porridge and hot beverage that made a real splash. Having walked such a long way, all the hikers ate about 160 kilograms of tourist porridge and drunk a considerable number of 200 litres of tea.

The event provided all the participants with an excellent opportunity to learn about the Programme, its priorities and the achievements of specific projects. It also revived memories from past editions of the ECD‘s by projecting photos and videos on the screen located at the start/finish point end of the route. But the story does not end here! After finishing the forest route, all the successful hikers received an eco-medal as a souvenir from the 10th edition of the ECD.

5 organizers from PTuras and 11 volunteers from Palūknis Secondary School and public entity “Atsigręžk į vaikus” helped to feel comfortable at the route.

For feeling the atmosphere we invite you to look at the photo gallery on the Facebook https://bit.ly/3E1hh46.
