The project “LATVIA SAUNA CULTURE” is a part of Jaunatne smaidam / Youth for Smile initiative to promote Latvian culture and cerate added value for organisation sustainability. Our biggest treasures are culture and nature, and both are still alive. As sauna is a part of our culture, we will restore a kind of a sauna, prepare sauna brooms from different plants, collect herbs for sauna water. Volunteers will have a possibility to learn about the Latvian sauna culture, use of different nature materials in sauna procedures and, of course, to try Latvian sauna which is connected with culture and nature. Within this work camp we want to raise money for our youth organisation initiatives in community work.
