The Poland-Estonia educational forum was held on April 15, 2021. It was attended by representatives of business, education and diplomacy from Estonia and Poland. The Institute of European Thought was invited to present a panorama of Polish education and present the challenges it faces. The founders of the Institute of European Thought and their invited experts presented the individual components of this extensive presentation. The event was met with great interest and answered many questions from the Estonian side. As a result of such a positive response, further meetings and workshops will be held during which the Institute will continue the dialogue aimed at improving the quality of education – based on best examples and best global standards.
Similar thanks were given to other Institute representatives involved in the preparation of the conference
