Conference SIGNALS is an annual event organised since 2017 by the NAOL for Lithuanian public sector representatives. Its national popularity has reached some 500 participants in 2019; it is broadcast live by the National Radio and Television and covered by numerous quality media outlets. Prominent national and international speakers, experts from the academia, policy makers, and public figures give speeches and take part in conference discussions.
A strong focus of the SIGNALS 2020 is placed on the achievement of Sustainable Development Goals: the actions that need to be taken to reduce the impact of climate change; the role of education in closing the achievement gap and reducing the digital divide. The importance of data in making vital national decisions will also be covered.
In light of the current global situation, SIGNALS 2020 is planned as both a live and virtual event, with simultaneous English interpretation. The conference will be open to EUROSAI and INTOSAI communities. Since one of the conference‘s key topics is climate change, it might be relevant to EUROSAI WGEA members as well.
More information and registration to SIGNALS 2020 are available at signals.lt/en.
