The cooperation project “100 friends” will give young journalists who have started working and journalism students the opportunity to come to get to know Estonia for a week and make new contacts. During the time in Estonia, the journalists will also visit Narva and Tartu in addition to Tallinn and Prime Minister Taavi Rõivas and Minister of Foreign Affairs will meet them.
