Extracurricular Activites

The extracurriculars will take place parallel to each other after the main conference, ie between ca 14:30-16:30 on the 17th of May 2024.

Work in Estonia 

The opportunity to take a deep dive into how Work in Estonia works with talent attraction and retention for places from marketing campaigns to international house soft landing issues. The session will expand into a discussion on the public sector role in the larger human capital agenda and how we can collaborate across Europe on global mobility.

Parliament of Estonia 

How to fight populism while fighting climate change? What does green transition hold for cities?  Co-founder of Future Place Leadership Pärtel-Peeter Pere is now a member of the Parliament of Estonia.  In this session, we will discuss what cities we want to build for the future and what role the government can play. In Estonia, voting in elections takes a minute. So does declaring your taxes. Everything is online.  Pärtel will share his experience and discuss how urban and green transition looks from a politician's perspective.  This session will be held at Riigikogu, the Parliament of Estonia, a 15 minute walking distance from, well, everything.

Lift 99

LIFT99 Tallinn Hub  is the flagship of Estonian vibrant startup community & the go-to place for founders. Join us to explore what needs scaleups have from the public sector as they grow in people and look to expand internationally? How can the scaleups attract the talents they need in collaboration with places and how can places be attractive as foreign direct investment locations, when they go global?

Sightseeing with a beer

Are you done with conference rooms and would rather walk and talk to fellow participants? And do you expect to be so busy during PLACExNordic that you won’t have time to actually see Tallinn, but really want to? Well then this side event is for you. We will make sure you see the main sights of the city and end up at a local brewery for a social gathering. Expect at minimum to meet Niklas from Move to Gothenburg. Fun fact: He actually has a brewery himself and will make sure we end up at the best one in Tallinn.

e-Estonia Briefing Centre

Get the behind the scenes in depth story and development of the e-Estonia brand and digitalization journey. the Briefing Centre serves as a hub of digitalisation, hosting annually over 6,500 visitors with a keen interest in understanding the intricacies of e-Estonia, the most advanced digital society. The point of departure will be Estonia as a test-bed mentality: permissive legal environment, large pool of open big data and collaboration of government-private sector-academia, making Estonia a pioneer of many emerging technologies for simply daring to test first. Additionally, the session will touch upon a wide range of Government’s e-services to smart city, cyber security, and education solutions amongst others.
