About us

The Estonian World Council is a non-profit organization established in 1954 to unite Estonians abroad.

Today EWC holds annual meetings that rotate among North America, Europe, and Estonia. In May 2018 in Tallinn, it passed resolutions, among other items with proposals to strengthen ties with the Estonian government and Estonians abroad. EWC members are working to achieve these goals.
