Naturally Sustainable project
On 5 July this year, university RISEBA hosted a transnational meeting in Riga as part of the Naturally Sustainable project. Together with partner teams from 7 European countries, RISEBA implements Naturally Sustainable project.

1. Drawing up a comparative study on activities related to these sustainability issues in each country/region;
