On March 11 and 12, the Baltic Nature Tourism project team from Latvia and Estonia met for a spring meeting in Tallinn.
Baltic Nature Tourism's platform balticnaturetourism.com, created last year, currently unites more than 100 entrepreneurs in Latvia and Estonia. Its purpose is to provide a starting point for nature tourism entrepreneurs in Latvia and Estonia to reach the UK market. Baltic Nature Tourism is not a reservation system, but an online platform where it is easy for travelers and tour operators to find the offer they are interested in and communicate directly with entrepreneurs by making a reservation without an intermediary.

During the meeting, we looked back at the work done so far and together we planned the upcoming activities.

On October 25, we participated in the "Smart Wednesday" organized by the Latvian Rural Forum to present one of our latest projects "Change Creators. Innovative business models for the non-urban creative sectors". The main aim of the project is to contribute to innovation, sustainability and resilience of the alternative cultural and creative places (ACaCPs) located on the sparsely populated areas through discovering, testing and introducing new business models and audience development models.

During the online meeting, we informed about the project idea, goals, planned works and already completed tasks. We also shared the conclusions and recommendations that arose during the national research, surveying and interviewing alternative culture and creative places in Latvia.
