Dear GLL Members and Friends,

As famous historian Yuval Noah Harari in his recent article in Financial Times pointed out, “in this time of crisis, we face two particularly important choices. The first is between totalitarian surveillance and citizen empowerment. The second is between nationalist isolation and global solidarity.”

With strong belief in citizen empowerment,  GLL CALLS Global Professionals to be ready to share their professional competence and know-how as the events evolve in the face of crisis and the needs come up for GLOBAL GLL COMPETENCE RESERVE

Drop GLL a message and a link to your LinkedIn profile to, if you are wiling to contribute and are knowledgeable or know some other Global Lithuanians highly experienced in the fields of: 

  • political science
  • socio-economy and sociology 
  • psychology
  • futurology and innovations 

We would particularly appreciate people with experience of global crisis management. We will be extra careful in handling your contact and will not pass them on to any third parties without your prior permission.  

Feel free to share this CALL with your network!


Another great collaboration among active citizens! As a result of #HackTheCrisis hackathon, public emergency fund #LaikykitesMedikai has launched a DIGITAL MAP reflecting live status of burning demand for protection equipment for medical staff in Lithuania on their most intensive duty ever.

The data is collected directly from hospitals and it also reflects amounts of necessities already purchased and distributed for the funds raised. Check the map to see how you can contribute as well

#LaikykitesMedikai has proven to be the most productive and transparent public fund in offering tools to support the medical staff in Lithuania. They have already raised more than 1,200,000 euros and are using these funds to meet the burning needs for basic medical equipment - gowns, masks, respirators, gloves. 


Žilvinas Mecelis, a global Lithuanian and a manager of private investment fund currently residing in Spain along  with his family has donated 250,000 eur for Lithuania to fight COVID-19 and its consequences

GLL is driven by the role models of global Lithuanians who perceive the global picture of developments and act immediately to make an impact. Thank you Žilvinas for the sincere inspiration to act!

Thanks to generous donations of global and local companies and individuals, three major anti-COVID-19 funds in Lithuania raised ONE MILLION EUROS:

  • National Anti-Covid-19 Fund under auspice of President  of Lithuania Dalia Grybauskaitė  has raised 480,000 euros used to acquire pulmonary ventilation equipment.

  • Private Fund #DraugeIveiksime under the auspice of President of Lithuania Valdas Adamkus has raised  465,000 euros.

  • platform has raised 180,000 euros used to acquire respirators, masks and tests. 

Lets double and triple! The global solidarity  will be a victory not only against the coronavirus, but against all future epidemics and crises that might hit the humanity.
