On the International Youth Day (12.08.2022), the youth festival KOPUMS took place in Dzintari Forest Park.

At the MARTA Center tent participants of the festival had an opportunity to:

  • discuss prejudices together with the young people of the European Youth Dialogue and representatives of the Ministry of Education and Science. And sharing experiences - how traditional harmful gender roles and norms affect their everyday life and decisions;
  • co-create paintings of HEALTHY and UNHEALTHY relationships;
  • create collages, breaking the stereotypes of "real women" and "real men";
  • add to the list - what must happen in order for the first sexual experience to be safe, both physically and emotionally;
  • take the test "How healthy my relationships are?"
  • learn about Center MARTA's projects: ID PRO and the manual on how to make mobilities more inclusive and Re-GROUP: methodology of youth groups for the prevention of violence in the youth environment.
 More than 70 young people stoped by to join in the activities, created by MARTA Youth programs.
