Who are Latvians?

Discover our culture

Modern pagans

The main traditional ethnic festival in Latvia is Līgo, which celebrates the summer solstice (June 23rd) and St. John Day (June 24th). During this celebration, Latvians reconnect with nature through rituals, songs and dances. This pagan festival is so rooted in our culture that it is considered even more important than Christmas.

A country of singers and dancers

Latvia is a nation of singers and dancers and the Latvian Song and Dance Festival is one of the largest amateur choral and dancing events in the world. There, approximately 40,000 performers altogether participate in the event. It started in 1873 and happens every 5 years.

Social Projects

Global Social Project

STEP 1: Create a workshop for all Rotaractors from ERIC

STEP 2: Create small groups and brainstorm over social project ideas

STEP 3: Elect the best social project in terms of feasibility and scalability

STEP 4: The winning project will be executed a week after the EUCO Riga 2022 in the whole ERIC and beyond. 

Local Social Project

Latvia is known for its effort to be green and to keep it green we have to take care of it.

For the past 20 years, our country has been promoting the “State cleanups”, where ~20% of the population gathers in forests, beaches, roads to clean up the environment and protect our nature.

Together with the Latvian superhero, “the project pigman”, we will clean up the beaches nearby Riga together, have a relaxing and beautiful walk, and pick up things that don’t belong to nature.

Our mission

After the pandemic Rotaract Europe needs to be re-ignited with our passion. We want to provide ERIC an amazing event for rotaractors to enjoy being together again. But not only this.

We see EUCO Riga 2022 as an opportunity for the Rotaract clubs of our Region to rise again.

Recently, Latvia and neighboring countries have suffered the loss of activities and many clubs closed. We are aware that things need a change and we have a big project of rehabilitating Rotary and Rotaract through different actions. EUCO Riga 2022 is a part of this, it aims to involve new members and boost ideas. For example, our post-EUCO will be hosted in collaboration with the soon-to-be-born Rotaract Tallinn International, which will be the first-ever Rotaract Club in Estonia. In addition, we are planning to create an Interact Riga and immediately involve the new members in the organization of our EUCO to inspire them to grow. We paired up with the HOC team of REM Riga 2013, which organized a successful event people still remember. With their experience in hosting an event for 400 people, we want to prove once again that Latvians are capable of creating events of a great scale.

Lastly, we were concerned about the quality and the standard of the organization of the first EUCO after covid-19. We believe logistics and management are top priorities and we have the right means and experience to give you an incredible adventure.

That is why we made sure to accommodate all the participants in one hotel, to have most of our venues at a walkable distance, and to party till the last one is standing!

The first EUCO in the Baltic States
