The book Lietuva 2120

The book 'Lietuva 2120' ('Lithuania 2120') is an unusual experiment of mind inviting to discuss the future of Lithuania and the world. 

The book presents 4 utopian and 4 dystopian scenarios for the future world and 48 interviews with Lithuanians like Prime Minister of Lithuania Ingrida Šimonytė, theatre director Dalia Ibelhauptaitė, artists Gediminas and Nomeda Urbonai, entrepreneur Ilja Laurs, philosopher Kristupas Sabolius, inventor Arminas Ragauskas, and many others, who are now creating Lithuania. 

Even though discussing and predicting the future is a difficult task, we are responsible for what it would be like after 20, 50, or even 100 years.
