The weekend was full of excitement and heated debate, because World Lithuanian Youth Summit has just took place in Harmony Park. It’s a festival of great ideas and wonderful music, which is held every two years.

Over the course of the three-day Summit young Lithuanians from all around the world had the opportunity to listen to prominent professionals’ multilateral discussions, share their experiences, discuss pressing issues, exchange contacts, and engage directly with key representatives from four different spheres – politics, education, business and culture. Later the participants could enjoy live music shows, various workshops, newest Lithuanian movie screenings, sports tournaments and other entertainment activities.
