The virtual forum for Estonians across the globe is held on 27 November at 4 p.m. (UTC/GMT+2). You can watch and think along with the virtual forum of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs wherever you may be, as long you have an internet connection. The forum will have simultaneous interpretation into English and Russian.
The forum will have several discussions on various topics. What is the life of expat communities like? What does the great diaspora survey tells us about what Estonians abroad are actually like? Why does the state care about how Estonians living abroad are doing?
What makes Estonia greater? Let’s exchange thoughts about global Estonians and see where they take us.
Between discussions, we will go to Estonians living in the United States, Sweden and Czech Republic. The President of Estonia Alar Karis will welcome Estonians across the globe. Musical entertainment is provided by London-born Kymbali Williams, who has Estonian heritage and whose love for Estonia prompted her to move and work in Estonia.
The virtual forum is moderated by Tarmo Jüristo, known in Estonia as an insightful social commentator.
