Community activities day "Let's do it!"

What is the community activities day "Let's do it!"?

It's the day of collective action that has been taking place in different forms all over Estonia since the year 2008. In 2008 people gathered together to clean Estonia from illegal garbage, in 2009 people gathered together to generate good ideas and from 2010-2020 there have been several different actions (Estonian: talgud) 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 traditional community activities day could not be held in 2020. That's why we invited all the people of Estonia to make and wear cloth masks.

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

Let’s do it in 2021

We have started preparations in the hope that the spring-wide community activities day will take place on May 1, 2021.
More information will be announced in early April.

                                                                                         

Let’s do it in 2019

The day of community activities took place on the 4th of May. The day was really successful - there were 2060 different actions taking place all over Estonia with around 45 150 participants (3,4% of the inhabitants)! Many Estonians care about their environment and are willing to collaborate. "You do not need to invent a new high-tech tool to change the world. The experience of The Day of Civil Actions shows that there is also no need for tens of thousands of Euros to change Estonian living environment - it is enough to have tens of thousands of Estonians who care," says the initiator of Estonian action, Tarmo Tüür.




World Cleanup Day

World Cleanup Day on 19 September 2020 united more than 11 million people in 164 countries. On that day volunteers and partners worldwide again came together, depsite the special requirements and many restrictions of Covid-19, to rid our planet of trash – cleaning up litter and mismanaged waste from our beaches, rivers, forests, and streets.

World Cleanup Day harnesses the power of people around the world to achieve incredible things by joining together. Its beauty lies in cooperation and collaboration: building bridges between disparate communities, and including all levels of society – from citizens to business, to government.
