Did you know that Estonia has the most international top models per capita?! Now that we got your attention, let’s learn some more facts: Did you know that forests cover nearly 50% of the country’s land area? Or that Estonia has over 2000 islands, most of which are completely uninhabited? Or that Estonia has been considered to be the country with the cleanest air in the world? Come and get to know the hidden side of Estonian culture - our love for nature.
Estonians love to go to the countryside every now and then, but it seems like we might not be able to continue that in the future. Climate change is influencing the whole world, but in Estonia the problem is very real: in 50 years we might be covered in water! That’s why we have asked the Civic Education Working Group to come here and teach us and you some survival tips. In our SU you will learn about zero-waste lifestyle, recycling, food waste and much more.
In addition to learning about survival of the planet, you will also learn how to survive in the woods, as we will be camping for three days on a beautiful Estonian island. But don’t worry, we won’t be stuck in the middle of the forest for the whole SU, we will also visit Tallinn, our busy capital city, a peaceful seaside resort of Haapsalu and the beach-party capital Pärnu.
This year is also special for Estonians themselves - our next nation-wide song and dance celebration that is visited by a sixth of Estonians each time, is held this summer. Sounds like a perfect time to visit Estonia? We think so too!
This is an opportunity for those who have a secret desire to return to their happy and carefree childhood days, who miss spending their days outside from dawn till dusk, and who are curious and adventurous. It’s time to rediscover nature’s playground and forget about our daily worries!
If you are looking for something new and unconventional, don’t miss this chance!
