With Estonia slowly emerging as one of the UK's most popular away breaks for families, Estonian pop star Hannah is launching a unique initiative to broaden awareness of the beautiful Baltic state amongst children and families in the UK. The aim is to use pop music to educate the British public, via a tour of UK schools, about all aspects of Estonia including tourism, technology and produce. This unique initiative is supported by the Estonian Embassy and Enterprise Estonia in London.
Tallinn, Estonia's capital was recently named European City of Culture 2011. To further enhance the country's image as a holiday destination and hub of technological innovation, Estonia's big musical star, Hannah, will be embarking on a series of educational initiatives combining the promotion of her single with talks about everything Estonia has to offer.
Estonia has an enviable reputation as one of Europe's most beautiful countries with fairytale nature, historic cobbled cities and some of the EU's most dynamic and innovative economies. The country is now emerging as one of the UK's most popular away breaks for families and as the face and voice of Estonia, Hannah will be meeting British school children and sharing her passion for her home country.
"To represent such a small but amazingly beautiful country is an honour for me," says Hannah. "I carry the country with me wherever I am and Estonia is a mystical place. It's a great country for finding some quiet time and you can walk through our historical medieval capital and pop into our small shops. You can also discover the most amazing restaurants and spend hours enjoying the fabulous food or you can just leave the capital behind and travel into the countryside which also has so much to offer. Undiscovered forests, filled with berries and mushrooms, miles and miles of scenic beaches and beautiful small islands with some of the world's best health-spas mean there's always plenty to do in Estonia and Estonians have a wonderfully natural and organic way of living. Estonia is simply beautiful!"
On Friday 13 November Hannah will be visiting Southfield Junior School in Highworth and on Friday 20 November she will be visiting Dorcan Technology School to perform her new single as well as teaching fun facts.
"I've worked with children's charities a great deal back home and it's great that I've now been given the opportunity to share with people what a great country Estonia is," says Hannah. "Pop music is great for bringing people together and I can't wait to meet with British children and share my passion for my home country with them."
