Information about the kick-off events down below ↓
The idea of “International Club” started with a vision of a comfortable place for young adults (Age 18-26) to gather and exchange their experiences. Even though there are a number of foreign students in Tartu there aren’t many places that promote environmental education which is where International Club steps in. The club welcomes both local estonians and foreigners living in Tartu to create a cross-cultural environmental discussion.
Through Club activities we will give young adults the opportunity to:
- come and listen to different lecturers;
- find like minded people to share their ideas with;
- give presentations about the topics they find the most important;
- find and write projects to reach more people;
- take part in tours around Tartu city;
- learn how to become more environmentally friendly;
- take part or lead different events;
- give their input about Club activities and lecture themes.
International Club will take place once a month and the dates might vary depending on the month and activities.
