Read about Ilze Mazpane: one of the Faces of the Year, in Latvia!

“The European Year of Citizens gives everyone a great opportunity to understand and actually use the rights that come with EU citizenship. I would like to encourage people not to conclude that everything has already been decided to our disadvantage, but to actively take part and influence social and political processes in order to increase the prosperity of each and every one of us.” - Ilze Mazpane, Consultant



Ilze is currently teaching Latvian Language and Literature to students in grades seven to nine in a small school in the Latgale region, as part of the programme “Mission Possible”.

She studied Philosophy and has previously worked as a copywriter in advertising, performed in improvisational theatre for 10 years and has worked as a volunteer in Austria as part of the Europe Volunteer Service Programme.

Ilze is currently a member on the Board of non-governmental organisation “European Movement – Latvia”, for the third year running.
