Latvia is a country sandwiched between Russia in the east and Sweden in the west.
In this it connects two very different cultures and ways of life. At the EDN conference we want Europeans from different backgrounds to make new friends over the three days. The internet enables us to be in contact with the whole world, but this conference will give us the chance to get to know people from beyond our day-to-day horizons. We want to focus on inclusion in Europe and not separation! Come and join us building bridges between people with different backgrounds, with- and without disabilities. It will enrich us to share our lives with others from east and west, people with and without disabilities, people with the kind of life experience that we can all learn from. Let’s look at the challenges we face and discover solutions together.
We can learn about God too, for we share the same planet as human beings created in God’s image to support and learn from each other.
How can the foundation of Europe’s culture, Christian faith, give us new hope and perspective in construction and building up our future together in new relations?
Come and cross the bridge to Latvia and connect with people who will enrich your life as you enrich theirs.
