The year before our Forum, Estonia is celebrating its 100th anniversary. Although we have had only 100 years of independence, we Estonians, have been living here for about 10 000 years. The history and the traditions can be felt while walking between the walls of the Medieval Old Town of Tallinn or traveling around the country. To get a better understanding of what you might like to see most, use the virtual travel with the help of videos of Estonia or Tallinn or find even more from webpages Visit Estonia and Visit Tallinn.
Our partner, Reisiekspert, offers you the possibility to travel around Estonia and visit our nearest neighbors with various tours. Read more on our tour pages!

“Creative Ideas open Innovation”, says our Forum patron from Estonia, Deputy Director General of the European Commission, Mrs. Signe Ratso. You will have many opportunities to brainstorm and to contribute. Together, we will re-energize the European Lions! The main workshop topics are:
• Sustainable Circular Economy
• Healthy Youth – Basis for the European Society
• E-Lion – Lion`s Cyber Solutions
To meet our Forum`s charitable goals, we have decided to finance the training of 12 service dogs for 12 youths diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes. You can donate to this project during the EF registration. These specially trained dogs will be handed over by all of us to the young people at the Closing Ceremony on Sunday, October 6th.
