Osale 2️⃣9️⃣. aprillil virtuaalüritusel „Invest in Three Seas“, mis keskendub uuele rahvusvahelisele investeerimisfondile ning investeeringutele transpordi-, energia- ja digitaristusse. Tegu on oma olemuselt ainulaadse fondiga, mis kombineerib avaliku ja erasektori investeeringud, toetamaks suuremahulisi piiriüleseid infrastruktuuriprojekte. Üks fondi esimesi rahapaigutusi oli Eestisse, mille toel rajatakse siia Baltikumi suurim andmekeskus.

Üritusel uurime:
🔹 Kuidas muudab Kolme mere algatus Ida- ja Kesk-Euroopat?

🔹 Millistel põhimõtetel toimib Kolme mere algatuse investeerimisfond, mis on poliitiliselt toetatud, kuid oma otsustes vaba?

🔹 Kuidas sai fondist investeeringu Eesti ettevõte, mis rajab Eestisse Baltikumi suurimat andmekeskust? Praktilised nõuanded rahastuse taotlemiseks.

🔹 Millised on olulisemad arengud ning investeerimisvajadused Balti riikide energia ja transpordi sektoris?

🔹 Kas avaliku- ja erasektori raha kombineerimine piiriüleste taristuinvesteeringute tegemisel on meie tulevik?

Üritusele on võimalik registreeruda aadressil: https://3seas.eu/event/invest-in-three-seas

Self-Made Cameraman — Boston Baltic Film Festival

In 1912, the first Estonian filmmaker, Johannes Pääsuke, was commissioned to capture life and people in a far corner of Estonian countryside: Setomaa. He returned with more than 1300 photos, but only 7 minutes of film footage. What happened to the rest of it? Our comedy tries to propose a version.

Täna 72 aastat tagasi muutus enam kui 20 700 inimese elu. Nad sunniti lahkuma oma kodudest ning küüditati Siberisse. 3000 küüditatut hukkus Siberis. Täna süütame küünla nende mälestuseks.

Today 72 years ago more than 20,700 Estonians were deported to Siberia by the Soviet authorities. 3,000 people lost their lives. We light the candle to commemorate the victims.
