In case your emergency first aid knowledge consists only from what you have seen during an episode from The Office and you can’t stop humming the tune of “Stayin’ Alive”, then ESN Lithuania has a perfect solution together with ESN LSMU - Go Xtreme!

Thanks to Viruthan Yoga-Nathan, who was the main organizer of the event, and his team, people from multiple Lithuanian universities were able to learn valuable information.

This is the third time ESN LSMU has provided the network with this intense one-day event. This time it took place on the 8th of December and covered everything from the recovery position, CPR (cardiopulmonary resuscitation) to the best ways how to call an ambulance and properly respond to emergency first aid related issues.

The participants were taught by Laurynas Ivanauskas, who is a member of the department of disaster medicine and has also been working for the emergency disaster response team in Kaunas. As someone who has worked for 18 years in the firefighter department and been involved in the activities of a team responsible for dealing with earthquakes, collapses, and other disasters, he was able to perfectly teach the participants.

However, the trainer started by explaining that “medicine students study for 6 years, and today we will try to learn everything in 6 hours”.

Members of various sections of ESN Lithuania tried everything in practice with the help of CPR training manikins, automated external defibrillators, bandages and many more tools that the general public could use when needed. The melody of the famous song by Bee Gees was still in the air during the training of resuscitation, but the participants actually spent time learning the best ways and tricks to help people.

According to the trainer, if a member of the public calls the ambulance and then does nothing, then it might be too late. Multiple participants admitted that they do not think that they have enough knowledge about emergency first aid events, therefore, Go Xtreme was a perfect opportunity for them.

Moreover, Laurynas Ivanauskas found a perfect way to always lighten the mood. The emergence number here is 112, but almost everyone knows the famous 911 from the United States of America. Ever wondered what happens when someone calls 991 in Lithuania? The trainer quickly showed that it is automatically connected to the Lithuanian number and has sent greetings to a friendly dispatcher after explaining that a training is happening and there is no emergency situation during the call.

He ended the training by explaining that a lot of people get in panic mode and freeze during real situations. Therefore, if you act and help, then you truly are a hero. Want to learn how to be one? Participate in Go Xtreme and find out!

'Don't be a thingist,' said Erasmus Student Network Lithuania in December 2017 and encouraged exchange students studying in Lithuania to donate various goods for an honourable cause.

Leaving country and leaving things

After a long autumn semester buying clothes, kitchen utensils and books to make their rooms and flats in Lithuania a little bit more like home, international students had a chance to make a good use of their things by donating them to those who really need.

Before leaving Lithuania and going home, students were donating things they wont be using anymore or taking back to their countries. Students mostly donated clothes and shoes. Kitchen and home utensils like cups, kettles, pans and cutlery were a common donation as well.

Initiative came from students

ESN Lithuania came up with the idea to gather and later on donate things from Erasmus and exchange students because all volunteers of the network saw how many things students leave when they departure from Lithuania after their exchange semester. Moreover, students themselves were often asking where they could leave things they don't need, as throwing them away after using only a couple of months seemed like a waste.

Social campaign Don't be a thingist was running for both spring and autumn semesters in 2017. Both times it engaged students from more than 6 higher education institutions in 2 cities.

Big universities and small colleges alike gathered many good quality items for people who cannot afford them. With the help of platform www.aukokdaiktus.lt, the donated goods  reached people in Vilnius and Kaunas.

ESN Lithuania and www.aukokdaiktus.lt started their partnership in 2012 and since then organized a couple of similar social campaigns.

Not the only social campaign

Don't be a thingist was organized as a part of the project SocialErasmus by Erasmus Student Network. The project is encouraging international students not only to explore the culture and country they are studying at but also to leave a piece of them in it by helping those in need or getting involved in various volunteering activities.

The project, as well as the Don't be a thingist campaign is continuously getting more awareness and attracting more students. Thus, the events will continue upcoming semester. International students can join Social Inclusion days, together with ESN volunteers visit various animal shelters and centres of people with disabilities, enrich local community by volunteering for different causes, and, again, before they leave, donate things to others.

Local students are also very welcome to join SocialErasmus events and volunteer. More information and news about the events can be found on ESN Lithuania Facebook page.

Every year Erasmus Student Network (ESN) is having a lot of meetings where members of this network are coming together to discuss on current matters, share their best practices and make decisions in order to run our Network better. One of this type of meetings is Central European Platform (CEP )in which the delegates from 8 countries from the regions are representing their sections and countries.

 

This year from 27th to 30th of October Lithuanian delegation led by ESN Lithuania National Representative Inesa Cvetkova and ESN Lithuania Projects and Events Manager Indre Engelkyte represented Lithuania in CEP 2016 Pecs, Hungary. The delegation consisted of 18 members from the sections of different higher education institutions of Lithuania.

 

A lot of topics related with the events, projects, problems or new ideas and the network itself were discussed during this annual meeting. Participants had a chance to attend different workshops and small sessions related to their positions in the network or according to participants’ interests. During Meet Your Colleagues session everyone had a chance to meet people from different sections that are having same positions, for example meeting with Presidents and LRs, or Vice Presidents, or Events Coordinators etc. and to see how other colleagues are dealing with struggles or sharing experience.

 

During Regional Platform in Pecs sections voted for the ESN Showcase project in which the sections are showing their best practices. This year’s winner of this project among Central European sections was ESN CULS Prague with their best practice "My Section" - an IT tool for pairing international and local students.

 

Another very important matter for Lithuania during this platform was ESN Lithuania’s candidacy for CEP 2017. After an intense voting ESN Lithuania was elected to host CEP 2017 in Vilnius with the votes of 117 out of 120.

 

CEP Pecs 2016 was an interesting event for the delegation. We have made a lot of new friends from different sections, and also we got a chance to get to know each other and ESN Lithuania network better.

All the sections of ESN Lithuania join their forces to make experience of exchange students in Lithuania unforgettable with the combination of a festival and a summer camp – ESCAPE Erasmus Student Camp.

All these days will be full of various activities: orientation games, sports, art workshops, games, brain battle, live music bands, DJ and more. We all know that weather in Lithuania is unpredictable but even that will not be able to make a change on the mood because all of the equipment for the planned activities can be quickly adapted to weather conditions – sun or rain, everybody is provided with the space for having lots of fun.

Not convinced yet? All weekend long nobody has to think about getting to places, finding a bed to sleep or food to eat. Reserved buses will go from the biggest Lithuanian cities to the place of ESCAPE. There are no luxurious hotels but living conditions are respective with the rooms for various size of people groups so everyone gets their own bed and personal space. For your convenience, breakfast, lunch and dinner are also included.

You can buy your tickets here.
