On August 31, the conference will be concluded with a guided tour, during which you will get to know more about Riga, its history, architecture and beautiful views from both land and water.
During the 2 hour walking tour you will discover the most important and outstanding places in Riga - the capital of Latvia and the largest city of the Baltic Countries, founded in 1201 by a German bishop. Riga offers a very versatile architectural and cultural heritage – the old town preserves buildings from medieval times to today (medieval churches, guild buildings, the famous House of the Blackheads, the Town Hall, the House of the Black Cat, the Riga Palace, Three Brothers etc.). We will walk through the smaller and bigger streets and squares of the historical center to appreciate it. Riga is also home to more than 700 Art Nouveau buildings, built during the first quarter of the 20th century, and has many beautiful parks, thus we will cross various parks to see the most distinguished of the Art Nouveau facades.
After the walking tour, we will take a boat and will go along the canal of the city and the river Daugava to admire the city from another point of view.
The fee: 25 EUR

For us, education is everything: it is the air we breathe and the bread
we eat. Education gives us the desire to question, look for evidence and
test. Education fosters our love for knowledge and stimulates our
curiosity. It is a driving force for changing society and accelerating
progress. Education reduces inequalities and honours new achievements; it
equips for finding creative solutions and strives to promote equity.
We know that educators are the ones who ensure knowledge continuity. The ATEE 2022 Annual Conference will serve as a platform to discuss a range of interconnected issues such as innovation in education, major challenges and scenarios for overcoming them, passion for work and interest in the cognitive process. Paraphrasing Hamlet's question and asking "to be or not to be a great educator," we would like to challenge our conference participants to talk on the problems posed by the pandemics, to address the development of digital solutions and examine implications of new scientific discoveries. In the new circumstances of pandemic and post-pandemic society, how to make teaching inspirational, learning meaningful and education more accessible?
