First week of December turned out to be a really busy on for project REGI. We had a pop-up information day and a party for local Estonians in Turku.
Pop-up event on Thursday (3.12) at Skanssi shopping center attracted over 120 people who were treated with mulled wine and gingerbreads, but also informed of our project, its background, goals etc.
In return we received a lot of positive feedback, good wishes and great stories about Estonians and Finns. Our stand was just in front of Monitori, a place where you can handle almost all your official businesses and get advice in your own language.
Two days later, on Saturday (5.12) over 80 local Estonians joined to hold a party with a band from Estonia. There was plenty of dancing, laughing and having fun. The big idea, nevertheless, was to make Estonians more coherent, guide them to be more active and interested in mutual activities.
It is fair to say that this party helped us to move towards these goals because new plans and ideas what and how to do next just poured in.
