Following a public demand of expertise in five years since it was founded, the NGO "Free Waterfront" has grown from narrowly targeted promoter of accessible and safe waterfront development and health-enhancing physical activity (HEPA) as potent and recommended method in youthwork, into an unique collaboration hub and network of experts, case promoters, waterfront communities and youth leaders. The ideas and commitment of organisation have been noted in Latvian Association of Local and Regional Governments, Latvian Agricultural Organisation Cooperation Council and in 21 local government adjacent to river Daugava, 1/3 of Latvia's territory.

The digital evolution and research in this project will empower continued NGO's work with a force multiplied in process of transformation to waterfront community leader, widening its reach thematically, including the diversity of civic society via new members. The project will provide an essential expert advice for NGO: non-project income tool, knowledge un fundraising, outline of new goals and functions in strategy documents, new member digital inclusion tool, development of a strong brand identity, within interactive web page - real life information and networking platform multiplied via social networks, and provide much needed equipment for development of high quality unique digital content of trainings, conferences and knowledge transfer by NGO.

In longterm the NGO will diversify its functions within new thematic discourse to address and include active citizenship and communities in Ķekava and Baldone districts first, then Daugava river basin and using its acquired sustainability - to eventually reach all waterfront communities in Latvia, at all times involving the youth initiative, especially most vulnerable and excluded from competition, as well as inclusive cultural values of communities by knowledge transfer and interest representation on local government level and within transnational umbrella NGOs.
