One part are local products like different oils, soft drinks and cookies. Ozolins told the workshop participants about the secret effect of garlic oil after a hard night and other Naukseni products.


“We definitely do not end here”, so workshop moderator Andris Klepers after two days full of information, discussions, new ideas and new insights. “There are many ways to tell a story. What matters is what you want to tell and how you want to be recognized in the world”, continued Klepers.
