Estonian Development Sector Celebrated World Day
The Estonian development cooperation organisations from civil society and the public sector celebrated the World Day on June 1, 2013 with a public festival in the main square of the capital city Tallinn.
The World Day festival aims to introduce world cultures to Estonians and raise awareness about human rights and decent life for people across the globe – something every person should be able to enjoy regardless of where they were born. World Day is a free-of-charge open air event for the whole family: musicians and dancers from Estonia, Finland, Guinea, Palestine and Ukraine gave a lively concert, children were entertained with global education games and parents offered food for thought and opportunities to hear stories about decent life across the globe. The event is a chance for active people to gather information and inspiration about why and how you could contribute their time, ideas and knowledge to provide a better life for all people in the world.
The event was organised by the civil society network Estonian Roundtable for Development Cooperation (AKÜ), and funded by the Estonian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the European Commission.
