Urve Läänemets

Vivat Urve! It is incredible that on July 24, 2022 Urve Läänemets, the founding member of DKG Estonia and a pillar of the Alpha Chapter, celebrates her 75th birthday. Still busy and energetic, she works as a lecturer at the Estonian Academy of Theater and Music and at Tallinn University of Technology. Urve is a meritorious educator and prolific publicist. Today, we can say that Urve Läänemets is our strongest professional both in terms of curriculum theory and in matters concerning study materials. Urve's aspiration at any level of education has always been professionalism and educational excellence. This is also the reason why, under the leadership of Urve and in cooperation with Marianne Skardeus from DKG Sweden, the Estonian state organization of the International DKG Association was established in March 2008, connecting university lecturers, school and kindergarten teachers, adult educators whose guiding principle is to support the professional and personal development of female educators. When describing Urve, DKG Estonia colleagues have said that she who does a lot achieves a lot: she seems to have more than 24 hours in a day. Urve's energy is enviable: she can handle a variety of things, from teaching and supervising scientific works, to organizing major international events while taking care of his home and family. Urve is an excellent hostess and an enviable "green finger".
