Organised by garagERASMUS


Join the Estonian (online) event on 23-24 April 2021!

Locally managed by the Johan Skytte Institute of Political Studies of the University of Tartu, the "Democracy is Europe" grassroots event in Estonia will consist of two days of activities:

  • On April 23, two panel sessions will be held to discuss the historical context of Estonia’s struggle for independence and its significance for nations struggling for democracy and freedom nowadays. The panels will be open to everyone interested.
  • On April 24, the registered participants, grouped in virtual teams, will work on different creative projects that capture the significance of Estonia’s experience for today’s Europe and its fundamental contribution to the process of integration. The authors of the best projects will receive an award certificate and a prize whose entity and nature will be revealed during the event. The day will be concluded by a keynote speech of Visiting Prof. Toomas Hendrik Ilves, former president of Estonia.

Given the ongoing health emergency related to the COVID-19 pandemic, the event will take place exclusively in remote mode.
