The aim of the project is to strengthen the culture of democracy and civic awareness through participatory activities and educational activities.

Currently, moving towards the new planning period and administrative territorial reform, we can see that increasingly higher involvement of residents, identification of needs and promotion of participation by residents is required, so that residents would have a sense of belonging to their region, that they are listened to, and would be willing to participate in economic, social, cultural and political processes in order to make a positive contribution to their daily life.   

Within the project for the purpose of promotion of the democracy culture and civic consciousness a democracy festival will take place as a new direction in Jelgava region. Activities for promotion of population participation and raising of the participation level will involve a survey of residents on various problem issues within communities and understanding of civic society, 16 neighborhood idea workshops will take place, in each parish of Jelgava and Ozolnieki regions, and one joint forum for residents of both regions.
