 Advance Planning Visits are made in order to organize international projects successfully, without different incidents. 2 people from each partner country came to participate in this APV. Latvia was represented by organization „Dagood studio” and its representatives Inga Rozenštoka and Tamara Jefremova, Croatia was represented by Maria Hok and Dora Muršić from organization „Association Strive!”, Italian organization „Associazione culturale Eufemia” was represented by Ana Rita Martins Pereira and Andrea Vercelli, Romanian organization „ProActiv for Community” was represented by Nicoleta Griguta and Andreea Ionita, and Spanish organization „Building Bridges Association” was represented by Antonio Garcia Guerrero un Claudia Lahuerta.

This visit was organized in order that all the participants of the project meet before the Project activities and could discuss all the important questions, concerning the forthcoming project: discuss and correct the plan of the Project activities, make the Partner Agreement, discuss a route and make the budget distribution. When all the questions, concerning the project, were solved, APV participants got acquainted with Daugavpils city and local sights.

As one of the APV days was the one when people all over the world celebrate Hour of the Earth – the global international campaign devoted to a climate problem, we have suggested our foreign guests to participate in a special action “Hour of Earth” which was organized by a volunteer of “ERFOLG” society from Czech Republic Monika Krivankova. Participants of the action turned off the lights for one hour and have spent educational evening in candlelight. Participants made candles of various colour combinations, played a shadow theatre and an educational game on global warming, waste recycling and garbage sorting.
