Singing of the Lithuanian National Anthem on the 100th anniversary of our Republic

9PM (UTC+2) on July 6, 2018

4 000 000 - that’s how many of us there are around the world. Perhaps even more.

Do you know that at least one third of Lithuanians live outside its borders? This number may not be exact, but historians estimate that around 1.5 million Lithuanians left Lithuania in the last 100 years. We can’t yet say exactly how far Lithuania has spread its roots and in what numbers – for now! The goal of LITHUANIA 4.000.000 is to invite 4 million Lithuanians to sing Lithuania’s National Anthem together on July 6th, 2018 at 9 PM (Lithuanian time) all around the world, taking the first step toward a global, digital Lithuanian community.

The celebration of the 100th anniversary of the founding of our modern state compels us to call every Lithuanian to join in singing the Lithuanian National Anthem – as one. Wherever we may live today, we are the children of a common home – Lithuania. No matter how far way we may be from one another, modern technology helps us preserve our common ties and find new ways to build strong communities and a strong nation.
