While the Estonian government has announced an emergency situation to contain the spread of COVID-19, our digital state still works at full capacity – after all, 99% of our government services are available online. Join us on Facebook for a live discussion with Florian Marcus, e-Estonia‘s expert speaker-analyst, and Indrek Õnnik, Global Affairs Director at the Government CIO Office, Ministry of Communications and Economic Affairs. We’ll be talking about the benefits of the digital society while under self-quarantine. Feel free to ask questions any time during the discussion.
Most government services in Estonia require no face-to-face contact with an actual human being and you can use them regardless of your location or health status. During the past weekend, Accelerate Estonia and Garage48 hosted an online hackathon, so that Estonia could emerge from the crisis stronger than ever.
A recording of the discussion can be watched as a Facebook video.
