image: A Joint Nordic Celebration A Joint Nordic Celebration

Wednesday 20 June, and invited by the Nordic Embassies and the Nordic Council of Ministers' Office in Estonia, representatives of the Nordic, Estonian and International communities gathered at the Governor's Garden, next to the Estonian Parliament, for a joint celebration of the Nordic National Days and to bid farewell to the Swedish, Finnish and Norwegian Ambassadors.


In his speech, Sweden’s Ambassador Anders Ljunggren mentioned Sweden’s gift to Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania on their Centennial Jubilees; three anniversary funds intended to promote a broad exchange between the people of Sweden and Sweden’s three Baltic neighbors with a special focus on promoting relations between young people.

The Swedish Government will set aside SEK 30 million (SEK 10 million for each country) as a basic contribution to the funds and will also invite businesses, organizations and private individuals in Sweden and the Baltics to help ensure the funds growth, with the aim of creating lasting and dynamic relations in society, the economy and culture. The gift was announced at the world’s oldest open-air museum, Skansen in Stockholm, in connection with the 2018 Baltic’s Day on 26 May.


The Joint Nordic Celebration also served as a farewell reception for the Swedish, Finnish and Norwegian Ambassadors. Instead of personal gifts, Ambassadors Anders Ljunggren, Kirsti Narinen and Dagfinn Sørli have suggested a contribution to the Estonian Rescue Board's important work with youth in Ida-Virumaa.

Through the project "Ida-Viru Rescue Youth", the Estonian Rescue Board will create mixed-language youth rescue teams, create meeting places and organize fire and rescue exercises to enhance communication between youth who speak different languages. The project is targeted towards low income youth and aims to include the whole family, including parents and grandparents, through the organization of family safety days.

SCCE has already contributed to the project and if you wish to do the same, here are the bank details:
Project "Ida-Viru Rescue Youth"; Beneficiary's name: Rahandusministeerium; EE382200221020595183 (Swedbank), EE731010220027689012 (SEB); Details: rescueyouth;
