    "7 Years old Estonian children could learn how to code". But I, when I was 7 years old is just knew about what is internet and how to download something even often breaking my own computer.What a outstanding country.

    Kids can operate with any electronic gadget much better than their parents. So, their parents are "causing a panic" and the children are grounded... outside the house. Go... be a teenager!Nope, they sneak in the house again and connect to the internet.Just kidding :P

    I know you're joking but estonia has actually had a boner for energy security over the last 20 years. The state owned energy company is currently producing ~150% of the national consumption and is on track to increase it to 250% by 2030 via massive wind farms in construction now on the islands.

    I find that the political system is just a slogan. The key is leadership.

    Plus political will is lacking, at least I don't see any of the steps that need to be taken being made

    I went here in March of 2018 with my friend (were two black guys from America NYC🗽) and it was the COLDEST! Country I've ever been too and the coldest I've been in my life lol. None the less we had a GREAT! Time...and everything about the video is 100% true. If it wasn't for the cold weather i'd move there cause they are looking for skilled immigrants workers to move in 🙌🏾
