Commendation for supporting the improvement of Lithuanian-Polish relations
The purpose of The Adomas Mickevicius Foundation for the Support of Lithuanian-Polish relations is to promote a positive relationship between Lithuania and Poland while developing and strengthening mutual cooperation. One of the objectives is to evaluate the issue of straining relations between the two nations through the prism of the Grand Duchy of Lithuania, which once unified the destiny of the nations. Gediminas Ziemelis, the general sponsor of the first Jerzy Giedroyc Dialogue and Cooperation Forum, assigned LTL 50,000. He continued active support and was a general sponsor of Jerzy Giedroyc award-giving ceremony in 2014 and thus financially contributed to the improvement of relations between Lithuania and Poland.
