LCLC joins UK Youth Union Annual Gathering 2013 (Photo)
Just like every year, LCLC
members and the board had a pleasure of joining the United Kingdom Lithuanian
Youth Union’s (JKLJS) Annual Gathering 2013. This year's discussions
focused on opportunities and obstacles for the young and highly educated
Lithuanians seeking careers in the UK and also explored options for
UK-based youth to return to their home country and share the experience and
knowledge gained abroad.
Former LCLC president
Daumantas Mockus participated in the main discussion panel together with other
guests from Lithuanian and the UK.
He encouraged young individuals to explore and carefully define their personal
and professional goals before deciding where in the world would they would like
to live, study or work. According to Daumantas, having a clear personal vision
will make it easier to answer the question of whether or not it is the right time
to return and continue one’s career in Lithuania.
LCLC president Raminta
Dereškevičiūtė and board members Ramunė Gedgaudaitė and Viktorija
Vasiliauskaitė gave a presentation on the Lithuanian
City of London Club and its ongoing initiatives.
Ramunė also shared the success of the newly-started ‘LCLC Lectures’ project
where LCLC members - highly experienced professionals – offer guest lectures in
universities of Lithuania. This was very much in line with a key discussion
point: should emigrants return to Lithuania
for good or should they stay mobile, grow further and share their experiences
in an organised and accessible way with professionals living and working in Lithuania?
The ‘LCLC Lectures’ project is a perfect example and yet another innovative way
of contributing towards progress in Lithuania
by sharing knowledge and experience gained abroad.
