Garupe village

About the pilot area

Garupe is one of the most growing villages in the municipality of Carnikava. In 2000 it had 280 inhabitants and in 2018 it had grown to 357 inhabitants. Having Garupe as a pilot area, means to involve the inhabitants for the development of their area. This will be achieved through activating the inhabitants in the village plan and implement at least one aim in this. The tools are three training sessions, mobilization meetings and using GIS (Geographical Information System) to be implemented to democratic votes on an activity (worth of 50 000EUR).
