Since 2008, Estonians gather every May for a day of community activism. The community action day Let's Do It, which started out as a national clean-up campaign, has now evolved into a free-for-all, where people can invent their own projects and carry them out with the help of local volunteers brought together by the Let's Do It team.
This year, over 300 projects have been registered already, with a month still left until the actual community action day. These include a project to clean up the Seto museum in the Radaja village in southern Estonia; a discussion on how to improve Estonian life at Ahvenamaa, a theatre action project at Saueaugu and a project to plant trees in the suburb of Haabersti, in Tallinn.
In addition, the Estonian National Museum is collecting community stories, of experiences and interesting events that happened during the community action day. These stories can be posted online on the Let's Do It website. The stories will be collected and analyzed by researchers at the Estonian National Museum. Stories can be submitted until May 13th.
The community action day takes place on May 7th.
