In a Facebook campaign titled “One Hundred Reasons Why it is Good to Live in Estonia”, President Toomas Hendrik Ilves is urging people to look for positive rather than negative aspects of Estonia. It is possible to give votes to the most popular ideas.
"I like our nature and culture, our frame of mind and traditions. I like our young people, whose pluck and entrepreneurship intermingle with foresighted maturity and positive criticism. I like Estonian musicians, poets, sportsmen, scientists and designers, entrepreneurs, farmers and employees," the president singled out some examples of what he saw as good in Estonia.
As of Wednesday January 4 the three most popular ideas were the ID card, gentle natural forces, and the scientific worldview.
The president's appeal to find 100 reasons why it is good to live in Estonia will last up to the end of January. An earlier campaign launched by Ilves was Bringing Talents Back Home.
