President Kaljulaid is a patron for a variety of undertakings and initiatives.
Estonian Agrenska Foundation
The Estonian Agrenska Foundation is a modern consultation and development centre for disabled youngsters and their families. It works on ways of supporting not just the young people with the disabilities themselves, but them and their families as a whole. To this end, the foundation established the Tammistu Family Centre.
President Kaljulaid has been the foundation’s patron since 2017.
Estonia has set itself the goal of its business enterprise sector investing 2% of GDP and the state 1% of GDP in research and development and innovation. In the Estonian Research Agreement, which was launched as an initiative by President Kaljulaid in 2018, employers confirmed their willingness to contribute to the adoption of research and development in the private sector. As the name suggests, the 2% Club unites companies that invest at least 2% of their annual turnover in research and development and innovation.
President Kaljulaid has been the club’s patron since its establishment in 2021.
‘Green Schools’ programme
‘Green Schools’ introduces environmentally friendly ways of thinking into the everyday activities of schools and contributes to their comprehensive and systematic implementation. This will help to shape a generation of young people who have a sense of responsibility and who value and care about the environment. Everyone is involved – kindergarteners, students, teachers, other school staff and parents.
President Kaljulaid has been the programme’s patron since 2020.
