The submission for discussion ideas for the 2018 Opinion Festival is open! 

The Opinion Festival is a meeting place for all layers of society, and gives a platform for different worldviews. Its mission is to improve debate culture and civic education.

The sixth Opinion Festival takes place on 10th-11th August 2018 in Paide. In addition, this year will play host to [pre-]opinion festival on 9th June in Southeastern Estonia.

Anyone is welcome to submit their idea for the programme of the Opinion Festival or of the [pre-]opinion festival. So, if you have just arrived or have been for a while, you might want to start discussion in Estonian society about a topic you find interesting. You may, for instance, think that a political decision requires more consideration, or an issue needs to be raised, or a question calls for more thorough discussion, or a particular perspective or new field of knowledge should be given a wider platform.

Anyone who submitted an idea will be contacted in the beginning of March and will then work together to create the programme for the 2018 Opinion Festival. The Opinion Festival team  is on hand to guide and advise on the preparation of discussions both with regard to content and technical considerations. If you have any questions, please get in touch: [email protected].

We are accepting ideas for discussions from 10th January to 4th February!
