Foreign Ministry to hold a virtual forum for the Estonian diaspora tomorrow

 

Tomorrow, December 3, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs has organised a virtual forum for Estonians across the world. This time, ahead of the parliamentary elections in March 2023, the virtual forum will look at the extent to which the voice of Estonians abroad counts and how much can people influence life in Estonia from abroad. Editors and journalists of the Estonian diaspora media will be in the studio to discuss the current and future role of the diaspora media.

 

The speakers at the forum will be:

Raul Rebane – media expert

Peeter Püvi – Director of the Consular Division, Estonian Embassy in Finland

Reet Marten Sehr – Estonian World Council, Estonian Central Council in Canada

Marcus Kolga – Journalist and political scientist from Canada

Sirle Sööt – Editor-in-Chief of the Rahvuslik Kontakt magazine, Chairwoman of the Estonian Association in Sweden

Ülle Toode – Estonian journalist and social scientist based in Italy

 

The virtual forum, which begins at 16.00 Estonian time, will have simultaneous interpretation from Estonian into both English and Russian. Viewers can also submit questions live via the portal. 

You can find more information about the live event on the Ministry of Foreign Affairs website here.
