At the moment we unite 12 sections working in 13 different higher education institutions all across the country including Vilnius, Kaunas, Šiauliai and Klaipėda. There are around 400 volunteers in the country working under the principle "students help students" aiming to improve the quality of intercultural exchange via various international and national projects marked with one and the only ESN star. Erasmus Student Network is one of the biggest interdisciplinary student associations in Europe, founded in 1989 for supporting and developing student exchange.
