International cooperation par excellence - Kaunas, LT

When looking at the issue of international cooperation among European universities one often finds himself surprised. Universities praise themselves all too often with an exhaustive list of partner agreements and cooperations with universities scattered all over the continent. They all seem to be internationally oriented institutions of education serving the needs of their students. But is that really the case? Don't we find ourselves repeatedly drawing the shorter straw? The international cooperation might exist on papers but reality proves a major lack of support for those students who actually want to become European students.

Within the scope of Ride for your Rights!, the Vytautas Magnus University in Kaunas, Lithuania has proven to be an excellent body of support. Vice-Rector Auksė Balčytienė welcomes all participants who will sign up for stage K of our tour. Her university is supporting our movement 100% and will provide participants with food and board while being there. Watch her statement in the following video clip and keep on following our blog for further updages on all other stages along the way.

Let's ride people!
