After the Conference more than 50 participants took a 100 km bus trip to the Garden of Destiny on an island on the river Daugava. It is a place where the past, the present and the future of the people as well as the nation merge...merge to give solace to the past, strength to the present and inspiration to follow your dream in the future. This is a special place for our Latvia’s people and a loving gift to Latvia on her 100th birthday on year 2018. In the Garden of Destiny we remember our nation’s past and tap into its energy for the future. The cornerstone of the Garden of Destiny is the people’s faith in the future and their determination to make this future lighter, brighter, more honourable, more beautiful.
