The kick-off meeting of UPENSKILLS was held the 11th of December 2019 in the city of Riga, the capital of Latvia.
The meeting was hosted by the Baltic Ontopsychology Association (BOA), the project coordinator, in the imposing skyscraper of the Latvian Academy of Sciences.
Our charming host, Dr Nina Linde, head of BOA, welcomed the participants from all partners in the elegant board meeting room, where, after a fist cycle of introductions, a detailed discussion was held about the smooth organization of project’s forthcoming activities. The research for the identification of skills needed by the youth and the recognition of important competences for young entrepreneurs is the first priority of our project.
The coordinating role in this meeting was successfully served by Elīza Gulbe instead of Polina Kolobova, our project manager.
Elīza was also our invaluable guide to the Latvian history when having a tour around the city of Riga in the late afternoon that ended with a visit at the National Library of Latvia, a dominant city landmark on the left bank of the Daugava river.
Our coordinator offered us such a warm hospitality that we are looking forward visiting Riga again!
