Leo Europa Forum 2019
From August 3 to 10, the Leo Europa Forum 2019 took place between Porto and Póvoa de Varzim.
DAY 1 & 2
On the first day, participants received LEF Participation Kits where we offer reusable water bottles to reduce plastic consumption. In order to recover from the trip that brought them to Portugal, Orgateam hosted a welcome sunset with traditional Port wine.
The second day of the LEF began with the Leo parade through the streets of Póvoa de Varzim. In one of the most emblematic places of Póvoa de Varzim, the Cine-Garret Theater took place the opening ceremony and the presentation of the countries. In the afternoon we hosted a fun presentation from each country, where participants had the opportunity to taste the cuisine of 27 different nationalities.
DAY 3 & 4
On the third day of the LEF, participants had the opportunity to learn more about the impact of Leo activities on different continents, talk about social innovation, marketing and communication, and the migratory crisis affecting Europe.
On the fourth day of the Leo Europa Forum 2019, Orgateam arranged a visit to the city of Porto. We start with a cruise on the Douro River, followed by a visit to the Port Wine Cellars. In the afternoon, participants had the opportunity to choose from six different activities to learn about Porto and its traditions. This magnificent day ended with a typical Minho dinner at Quinta do Santoinho.
DAY 5, 6 & 7
On the fifth day, we had our social activity where we rehabilitated the facilities of two Póvoa de Varzim charities and offered new smiles to the children who are there.
The sixth day of the Leo Europa Forum was full of smiles, hugs and glamor. We promote street actions through Póvoa de Varzim, where we give hugs, stop traffic and give people the opportunity to get to know their best. In the evening we had a memorable gala dinner.
On the last day of the Leo Europa Forum 2019, participants had the opportunity to practice surfing and beach sports. Amid hugs, smiles and tears came the closing ceremony of the Leo Europa Forum 2019.
