On Friday 25th August, a trip was organised to Vilnius Municipality by the European Foundation of Human Rights (EFHR). The trainees Maciej Grześkowiak and Anna Mitrowska, along with the EVS volunteer Carmen Cara Lorente had the chance to attend a one hour guided tour at this public institution, which is located in the centre of Vilnius.
The three trainees had the opportunity to learn how administrative and customer services work in Vilnius and how everything is processed more efficiently and quick due to the development of technologies and IT services. Moreover, the decision-making room was also visited and how Lithuanian citizens have the right to participate in local political decisions at the same room was also explained.
Finally, the EFHR team was taken to the viewpoint of the building, located 20 floors up. The opportunity to see Vilnius Old Town from that perspective was something really amazing and beautiful. The pretty views along with the explanations provided by the guided tour made this experience something unforgettable for the EFHR team.
