Participants had the opportunity to visit the municipal landfill, water treatment plant, biogas plant and waste recycling plant in the Amasya region, where experts in the field shared their experiences. Several official visits have been organized. The Daugavpils delegation participated in working groups organized by the Amasya University, where specialists from Latvia and Turkey were able to share experiences, discuss and seek solutions to environmental challenges. Daugavpils city was presented in the Town Twinning Action conference at the Suluova Cultural Center.
