The topic of this meeting is “Life online”. As the Mayor of Elva, Ms Eva Kams says, "Estonia is well known for its e-services - e-elections, e-taxes, e-police, e-health care, e-banking, and e-school are just some examples. Almost any activity can be performed over the internet. In general, lives in the whole World have moved to online and social networks. It has both good and bad effects in our life."

Dear Sir/Madam,

A call for stories to the Bulletin 2/2016 launched


Inclusive and healthy cities

Cities are the centres of growth. The urbanization creates opportunities, moves the economy forward. But at the same time inequalities and exclusion are still a challenge. How can we prevent them and how can we ensure social, spatial and economic inclusion?

The Editorial Board would like to invite the cities to share their experiences on how they approach the vision of inclusive and healthy city.

Battle of EST

Battle of EST (BOE) is the oldest street dance competition with the most impressive list of performers in Northern Europe. The main events include breakdance team competitions. One can also witness hip-hop, popping and solo b-boying contests. This year’s 16th international BOE festival is an honest rejection of everything with a fake glitter, turning the dance battle competitors into real artists of life! It is a riot of people dancing themselves breathless, while living and breathing the dance culture.

The first international business festival sTARTUp Day 2016 will be held on December 9. sTARTUp Day is a festival where traditional entrepreneurs and start upers, government and media will loudly and proudly discuss about different business models. The topic of the festival is quite intriguing: how to earn if there is nothing to burn? We know that traditional entrepreneurs have criticized startups for burning investors’ money and not being brilliant at earning money. Now it’s time for all parties to give their opinions on a big stage.
