23rd August 2019 will mark the 30th Anniversary of the Baltic Way or Baltic Chain.
As the only common Professional Military Education institution of the Baltic states, the Baltic Defence College is proud to support our Framework Nations (Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania) in promoting this important milestone in our shared history. Our intent is to observe this milestone with key activities so that our members understand its significance in our collective mind and to use the opportunity as a team-building event.
On Friday, 23 AUG we are organising a Fun Run/Walk around Anne Kanal with family and friends. The intent is to re-create, virtually, a chain around Anne Kanal, which will represent the Baltic Way for our purpose, by moving along its length, all the while reflecting on what the Baltic Way meant.
We warmly invite everyone to join us and commemorate this important event together, just like the two million people did 30 years ago.
You are welcome to bring the Baltic states’ flags with you.
The programme is as follows:
- 07h25: RV Anne Kanal Staging Area (See map below)
- 07h30: Group Photo
- 07h31: Start walk/run. At least one lap.
- 08h30 (NLT): Event ends.
