Let’s do it!
Apr 29th 2018

 

What is the community activities day “Let’s do it!”?

It is the day of collective action that has been taking place in different forms all over Estonia since 2008. In 2008 people gathered together to clean Estonia from illegal garbage, in 2009 people gathered together to generate good ideas and from 2010-2017 there have been several different actions all over Estonia. Every community, organization or active citizen decided by themselves what needed to be done and asked other people to join according to that.

The main goal of the day is the contribution to the civil society in Estonia by promoting active attitude, strengthening local communities and supporting the development of local leaders.

The day is also a part of a global event called Let’s Do It! World or World Cleanup Day which is initiated by Estonians. There are already more than 100 countries all over the world that have joined the action. You can read more about the cleanup also from the website of Let’s do it World.

The community activity day “Let’s do it!” will take place on the 5th of May 2018 – everyone is welcomed to join! 🙂

Estonian Public Broadcasting and the team of “Let’s do it!” are calling everybody to plant a tree on 5th or 6th of May 2018. Planting a tree keeps people to be in touch with nature. For Estonians, the tree has a special meaning, it keeps your soul and gives strength. When planting a tree, you make a cohesiveness with nature. The tree can be planted in your or friends garden, in young forest etc.

If you like to join with the tree planting, do it please on 5th or 6th of May, make a photo of you and the tree you planted. Post the photo on social media and mark with #OmaPuu or send the photo to europea.editor@gmail.com.

LET’S DO IT!!! 🙂
