Section in the Spotlight


Born in the autumn of 2009 with only ten members, ESN KTU is one of three sections based in the city of Kaunas, Lithuania. The section has grown rapidly, along with their interest in the network. ESN KTU has shown that taking on challenges pays off, especially if you know the importance of cooperation. Their ability to work with anyone despite the differences is what drives them to earn prizes like “Section of the Year” at ESN Lithuania’s GO PUBLIC Awards. 

You can check out their work here.
