On Saturday, 7 May 2016 the Europe Day was celebrated in Tallinn with a family event on Vabaduse Square and the orienteering passport game and open doors in foreign embassies.

The Danish Embassy was also happy to keep its doors open for all visitors from 11:00 to 15:00. In embassy’s conference room we talked about the digital efforts in Denmark and introduce some mobile apps and devices.

Guests had the possibility to try Vaavud’s anemometer Sleipnir to be used with smartphone and could participate in the lottery with Sleipnir as award. We shared the information about mobile app BeMyEyes to help the blind, initial birthmarks control app skinScan and sensor Cortrium to measure and wirelessly transmit information about body temperature, heart rate and other vital data, and computer programme that allows data to be processed and used for health status checking.

We introduced the UN Women Deliver conference taking place in Copenhagen, for which everyone could show support via #IDeliver campaign. There were online puzzles of Danish landmarks and a real puzzle. Children were greeted by Friend Bear, mascot of "Free of Bullying" programme that has been taken over from Denmark.

Ice-cream in Danish style could be bought as well as liquorice products and soft caramel from Manuela Maitsete Maagia.
