"Silent Spring" 15.04-15.07


We are a grass roots movement that started with the idea of organising a demonstration in support of Estonian forests on 16 August 2020. Due to the spread of the COVID-19 coronavirus we were forced to postpone this demonstration called. The new date is the 16th of August.  By now, dozens of people have joined the organising team. Their contribution is based on their enthusiastic support for the cause, and none of them are paid for the work. The rural/urban as well as male/female ratios in the team are well balanced. Our team also includes people from different age groups and from varied walks of life. The main common denominator that joins us is concern over Estonian forests and readiness to actively contribute towards changing the current situation.
