Latvia: New social campaign launched to increase tolerance towards third country nationals in Latvia (Unofficial translation)

The Society Integration Centre, via its project "National Integration Centre", has launched a new social campaign - “Our people" - to address the lack of tolerance towards third country nationals residing in Latvia.

At the launch event of the campaign, the head of the SIF secretariat Aija Bauere emphasized that it is crucial to eliminate the idea that third country nationals are alien to Latvia and that people should not be divided into ‘us’ and ‘them’.

The campaign consists of interactive events and workshops, which will introduce locals to various aspects of different cultures. there will also be visual materials placed in public spaces across Latvia, such as libraries, schools, public transport and in the street advertisement stands.
