JVI Alumni Quotes

Julius Gratulevičius

There is no doubt, that climate change is one of the most important issues of our time, which slowly, but steadily is negatively affecting nearly every aspect of our lives. In this JVI’s course we had unique opportunity to reveal very complex causal links of our social, economic and political structures that are crossing our planetary boundaries and leads us to uncertain physical and transitional risks. Luckily, there is still time to act and together with experienced JVI’s lecturers from Austrian institutions, European Commission, Academia and Business representatives we thoroughly searched for the solutions with a special focus on a monetary policy. It is still unclear how all climate change processes will turn out, but during this course we have received the most up-to-date information and best practices to turn our country's financial and economic direction on a greening path.  Julius Gratulevičius, Senior Specialist, Investments Department, Ministry of Finance of Lithuania. Climate Change and Green Finance Course, June 20-24, 2022.

I would like to express my thanks to JVI for the organization of the virtual course on “Public Governance and Structural Reforms”. This course was an interesting experience, covering a broad range of aspects related to structural reforms, from judicial to medical and environmental topics. What I most appreciated of the course was the approach of presenting several aspects that are important for an economy and that can contribute not only to generating GDP growth, but also to ensuring better life standards. I liked the dynamic presentations, discussions and flexibility and professionalism of the lecturers. As all of JVI seminars, country experiences are brought forward and contribute to a better understanding of the implications of very diverse theoretical concepts.
