School programme “Meet the Saeima”

The educational school programme “Meet the Saeima” offers young people an opportunity to understand the everyday work of the parliament and to learn in an interactive manner how the legislative process influences their lives and how they can affect the work of the Saeima.

The programme aims at sparking young people’s interest in political processes in Latvia, encouraging them to follow these processes and get involved, as well as educating them about the Saeima, its structure, the legislative process, the work of MPs, democracy and civic participation.

The school programme was launched by Solvita Āboltiņa, Speaker of the Saeima, at the Riga English Grammar School on 19 October 2012. More about the event: http://www.saeima.lv/en/news/saeima-news/20175-school-programme-meet-the-saeima-is-launched

The school programme has so far involved more than 4,900 students from 105 schools all around Latvia.
