East-Harju Partnership covers the territory of three municipalities – Anija, Kose and Raasiku. The goal of the Ida-Harju Cooperative is to support the local initiative of Raasiku, Anija and Kose based on the needs and interests of the region. Also, to prepare and implement the region’s strategy based on the partnership of three different sectors (public, private and non-profit sector).
The activity group was created on August 13, 2008 by 14 founding members. As of November 2023, the action group has 50 members.
By the year 2030 we hope that East-Harju area is a valued and safe living environment that is characterized by versatile entrepreneurship, good leisure opportunities, capable communities and effective collaboration. The region is well-known all over Estonia in terms of recreational opportunities.
