Virtual three for the weekend in Latvia: acting, birdwatching and Earth Hour

Spring weather has arrived and more people are enjoying the weather outside, but let's not forget about social distancing! If you're going a bit stir-crazy at home and feel like you've already seen every new movie and TV show don't worry, we've come up with a few more ideas to keep you occupied and not glued to the new over the weekend.

Dirty Deal Teatro's Getting Closer

“You can't put culture in quarantine!” declares the theatre's website. Instead of attending live shows or watching recorded ones online, they're inviting everyone to get involved and become actors themselves. They've even provided you with step-by-step instruction in both English and Latvian on what to say and act out. The plays can take 20-60 minutes and you can do it with someone in person, or through video chat - with or without an audience. Keep checking back for new additions.

Latvian Fund for Nature's Bird Cam

For the sixth year in a row anyone can tune in to the bird cams and see what's going on real-time in six bird's nests. The nests are located throughout the country and feature nests of the following protected bird species: eurasian eagle-owl, osprey, white-tailed eagle, goshawk, black stork and eurasian bittern. Discuss in person with your family, video chat with your friends, or see what others have observed in the online forums in both English and Latvian.

Earth Hour activities for the whole family

The annual event will be held from 8:30 p.m. - 9:30 p.m. Latvian time, and there's a lot more you can do than just turn off the lights. Add your voice online to all those around the world calling for urgent global action to address the crisis for nature. Join the likes of Latvian choir Latvian Voices and upload your rendition of “World on Our Shoulders” to social media. The World Wildlife Fund also has a great list of things to do at home during the event, such as eating dinner in the dark or camping out in your living room.
