One of the lectures presented was "Creative Communication of Cultural Heritage: City Games."

Among the examples of the urban games, Jekaterina has presented the development of the game "Upė - stories flow," based on the stories about the river and riverside.

Although the game itself was developed based on the stories shared by people from the Kaunas region's communities and focused on the Nemunas River, it can be used in various cultural contexts.
