"The Great Conference of Ideas and Developments" is dedicated to the national initiative "The Idea for Lithuania". The conference will be held on the eve of tremendously important occasion for the whole country– the centenary of the restoration of Lithuania's independence.
This exceptional event will mark an important stage of the initiative: for the first time, three most important breakthrough ideas for Lithuania which have been approved by experts and the society will be made public.
The conference will also focus on success stories from other countries. Some best internationally known speakers will speak about how the implementation of bold innovative ideas in education, defence, tax system and other areas have affected the development of now successful countries. Education system in Finland, the Israeli diaspora and many more success stories from other countries – these examples will be used to inspire the progressively thinking audience.
Influential speakers from Lithuania will also play an important role. For the first time in Lithuania, three best known Lithuanian economists will present a joint statement: Nerijus Mačiulis, Gitanas Nausėda and Žygimantas Mauricas are going to introduce the proposed economic ideas for Lithuania and make a detailed overview.
The audience combined both from Lithuanian and foreign guests will also have a unique opportunity to listen to an unconventional presentation (its speakers will be announced shortly) explaining why do the Lithuanians are programmed to be successful.
The opening of the conference will be marked by solemn introduction of "The Act of Lithuanian Breakthrough". This act is a symbolic allusion to the Act of Reinstating Independence of Lithuania, signed on February 16, 1918, which consolidated Lithuania's independence. The declaration of "The Act of Lithuanian Breakthrough" aims at showing our determination to implement ideas that will ensure Lithuania's prosperity in the future.
“The Act of Lithuanian Breakthrough" together with the three selected ideas will be made public and all Lithuanian citizens will be invited to sign it electronically on the initiative’s website www.idėjalietuvai.lt.
