Estonia

Short presentation

The only country specifically designed for remote working: a network of private and public service providers.
The companies that have joined the project (19 at the moment) are very different: there a small country hotels, restaurants or B&Bs, there are coworking offices, some are creative spaces like art galleries or workshops. Remote working became a new standard !

Contexte (territory issues, targeted audience)

South-Eastern Estonia is lagging behind the urban areas in economical and social standards. Depopulation is a big problem. The area is known for beautifulf nature and tourism, but tourism services tend to be very seasonal

Geographical coverage: 3 counties in South-Eastern Estonia
Our main target group is technologically savvy workers that need a change of routine and environment.

Project's start year :

Points of vigilance, difficulties to pass through, success factors

Strong points: The concept of remote working has really evolved and changed during 2020, because on Covid-19. There is more trust in remote working, and it has become a new standard. The public - private partnership is also a success factor.

Critical points: The lockdown of countries limited the number of potential clients in 2020, but there was more than usual interest among local people in finding a peaceful remote working environment.

What we keep: We keep growing in number of partners, and in spreading the word.
