Dear GLL members and friends,

  • have made feasible and sustainable impact on the economic, scientific, social, or cultural development of Lithuania in 2020, and also:
  • have international professional experience,
  • have maintained a close relationship with Lithuania.

Global Lithuanians have once more proven they are united, generous, and smart in finding ways out of the most complex situations in the face of the crisis. 

Nominate for the Global Lithuanian Awards 2020 until Dec 6, 2020. 

Whole Month of Celebration!

Unusual circumstances call for creative solutions. Instead of having the Global Lithuanian Awards (GLA) event in Vilnius, we will have a whole GLA month in January! 

  • We will reveal the shortlisted nominees for GLA 2020 to the public on 29 December;   
  • We will be annoucing winners in various categories every week in January, together with our partner LRT; 
  • We will invite you to online sessions with laureates of GLA 2020 to hear their stories and answer your questions.     

If the circumstances allow, we hope to welcome you in person at our traditional X-mas Drinks Networking on 29 December!
