- Published special edition of the youth magazine with stories in collaboration with Narvamus
- Organise media campaign in order to share stories and inspire other youth

Within those actions, we expect that young people will be able to get to know stories and stories will have an impact on them. We want to see them more confident and able to speak their mind loudly. Also, young people and all readers/ participants of events will be able to learn more about Baltic and Nordic countries.
