"Naturally, no one is obligated to join my initiative, but everyone is welcome to do so," he added, before wishing he people of Estonia a happy New Year and a successful year ahead.

The campaign is also using a social media hashtag, #positiivnejaanuar (English: Positive January) Kaljulaid, who also sits on Tallinn city council and recently became the SDE group chair there, announced.
