On Friday, 28 April, Vytautas Magnus University will host the student conference “Freedom to Create”, which was successfully launched last year. In 2022, the conference was dedicated to the centennial of the University of Lithuania, and this year it will address the international Sustainable Development Goals set by the United Nations.

The conference programme will include nearly 40 presentations in Lithuanian and English, an artistic performance “Lyg testamentas” (Like a Testament) by Declamationes, a performance “Mūsų teatro pasaulis” (Our Theatre World) by VMU Theatre Dance and Theatre students, as well as an interesting and meaningful time spent surrounded by like-minded people.

“Security and empowerment of communities, sustainable consumption and sustainability, reduction of exclusion, well-being, and the fight against climate change – these are global challenges that will encourage our students to recognise the advantage of studies based on the principles of artes liberales in tackling complex problems. After all, such challenges can only be overcome through creativity, multifaceted approaches, and a broader view and assessment of the situation. And this is exactly what we strive for by providing students with individualised study options,” says Vilma Bijeikienė, VMU Vice-Rector for Communication.

As in the previous year, the conference will be held at the VMU Multifunctional Centre for Research and Studies (V. Putvinskio g. 23, Kaunas).
