Exhibition "Hi! Europe Calls!"

Why do we still need the EU in the 21st century? The exhibition organised by the Embassy of the Federal Republic of Germany in Lithuania aims to answer this question.

The temporary exhibition featuring 17 posters will firstly be held in the Lithuanian Parliament. It will then move on to universities, public libraries and EU focus points and information centres throughout the entire country.

Initially set up to end the frequent and disastrous wars between neighbouring countries, the EU has achieved significant results in many fields over the last 50 years.

The EU is the world’s largest free trade area, the largest community of exporters and the biggest contributor of development aid in the world. It has established common rules on product safety and consumer protection and promotes a large number of educational programmes.

The EU is also very active in the environmental area, for example in promoting the use of renewable energy sources.

The German Embassy wishes to use this exhibition to raise awareness about these important achievements.

Wonderful photography together with brief explanatory notes in Lithuanian will highlight the enduring relevance and importance of Europe.
