Submitting a discussion idea for the 2018 Opinion Festival and [pre-]opinion festivals

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. 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.

We were gathering ideas for discussions from 10th January to 4th February – the public call is now closed.

We will be contacting anyone who submitted an idea in the beginning of March and will then work together to create the programme for the 2018 Opinion Festival. Our 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:
