Dear GLL community and friends, 

We are excited to announce the first GLL SUMMER GATHERING set to take place in Vilnius National Art Gallery on July 25!

For several years, we have enjoyed individual summer meet-ups and catch-ups with visiting global Lithuanians. Now, we would like to share this joy by gathering everyone for a long afternoon of experience sharing and valuable networking. 

The world is bubbling with new trends, issues and events on daily basis, and most of us are active players rather than bystanders. Let’s meet to reach for synergies and open more doors for Lithuania’s global presence.

What will start with sharing will turn into the big stage for conversation with all of those who gather at the artistic venue with the view upon river Neris.

We are curious to know what you have been up to. Become a part of it.

See some of the GLL members bellow who will be sharing their stories.
