The follow-up activities to the My Estonia brainstorming session have gained new impetus since the summer holidays. In August there will be four new brainstorming sessions held at subject-based workshops in order to work more specifically on the ideas and topics presented at the 1 May brainstorming session. The brainstrorming session did a great job of bringing together people with the same interests so that they can work with one another to find new solutions to the issues closest to their hearts.
