aNATOmy: one day with a NATO soldier


The project aNATOmy: one day with a NATO soldier” aims to help foster awareness and understanding of NATO, its values, policies, and activities, and to increase the level of debate on peace, security, and defense related issues. 

 The project aims to emphasize NATO’s values and role in ensuring security of our country. The main target groups that we aim to reach with this project are three: young people (age group 18 to 35), and especially young women in this age group; and broader, non-specialized publics, including the Russian speaking minority in Latvia. During the project, Vidzeme University of Applied Sciences (ViA) as the Lead partner with a project partner – the television channel in Latvia “ReTV” (ReTV)  - will produce the following: 

1.    A factual-documentary film (46 - 48 minutes long) about the daily life of NATO Allied Forces soldiers from the point of view of two young people (two students - one woman, one man), described in detail in Section 4 “Strategy” and Section 5 “Implementation”;
2.    One face-to-face discussion with live broadcast;
3.    Promotional content for the documentary film in TV (channel ReTV) and in the social media profiles of ViA and ReTV;
4.    Promotional content for the face-to-face discussion in the social media profiles of ViA and ReTV.

The project will run for six months, from July 1 until December 30, 2020. The total budget of the project requested from NATO is 9916 EUR.
