a tent with a TV studio where anyone could learn about the basic principles of news creation and how to recognise manipulation techniques that might be employed;
a panel discussion on social trust: “Trust – the Nordic Gold”. The interactive discussion went back to the roots of social trust in the Nordic countries and its impact on society and economy while exploring the possibilities for raising the levels of trust in Latvia. The event was jointly developed by the social anthropologist PhD Agnese Cimdiņa (Latvia), Professor of Political Science Peter Thisted Dinesen (Denmark), Vice President in Sales and Business Development at Neste Jacobs in the United Arab Emirates Oskar Rautiainen (Finland), Head of International Projects’ Unit at the Norwegian Association of Local and Regional Authorities Elita Cakule (Norway) and a Lutheran pastor and teacher of Christian mediation and mindfulness Indulis Paičs (Latvia).
