Map a birthday card for EstoniaPublished: 20.04.2016

It’s the perfect time to start thinking about making a birthday card for Estonia. “Liigutav Eesti” or “Moving Estonia” is challenging everyone to make a card by “drawing” a message or image on a road- or landscape map using a mobile app or GPS tracker.

A lot of people do not go in for sports regularly, since they might lack sports failities or good coaches in their area. On the other hand, using electronic devices and smartphones is gaining popularity and are mostly being used indoors. An initiative called ''Liigutav Eesti'' or ''Moving Estonia'' challenges us to make good use of such devices by using them for outdoor activities, such as sports.

''Moving Estonia'' created two videos as a gift for Estonia's centenary. The videos include a step-by-step guide, how to ''draw'' a message or image on a road- or landscape map using a mobile app or GPS tracker. A card can be created alone or together with family and friends; and it is possible to create the message by either walking, running, riding a bike, skiing or using a wheelchair if necessary. 

Please feel free to share your cards on social media as well, using hashtags such as #liigutaveesti, #minukaart, #ev100, #kingitusEestile

Enjoy making birthday cards for Estonia!
