13/07/2018 /  European People’s Festival in Radviliskis

The European People’s Festival was first organised in 1992 in the Belgian city of Libramont. The primary goal of the festival is to promote communication and cooperation among the citizens of the European Union regardless of their political, religious, racial or other differences, and to create a coherent European community. In order to achieve this goal, each year an international event is organised in yet another member state of the European People’s Festival, visited up to 1,000 participants from other countries.

In 2018, the European People’s Festival will be held in Radviliškis. The festival is organised not in the capital or metropolitan cities pampered by the abundance of cultural events but instead in relatively small cities or towns with approximately 20 thousand of residents that can boast of their history, crafts, prominent creative people, or active communities. The wood processing company UAB Juodeliai also contributes to this exciting initiative as a general sponsor.

The festival is a great opportunity not only to introduce our country but also to get acquainted with the culture and traditions of other nations. The participants of the event will rally in various friendly sports competitions, photography and drawing contests, present their culture and traditions in spectacular performances, offer to taste culinary heritage dishes and present their country in specially designed stands.

08/06/2018 /  UAB Juodeliai actively participated in the run event “Run for Marijampolė”

For the past five years, the residents and visitors of Marijampolė have been honouring and celebrating the city with an increasing participation in the running event dedicated to proclaim the city of Marijampolė.

This year, more than 1,000 runners took part in the jubilee running event “Run for Marijampolė” which took place on the 27th of May. Traditionally, the participants could choose among three events: a half marathon of 21,098 km, or a distance of 10 km or 5 km. This year’s new novelty was Nordic walking – a cognitive hiking event.

In this special year, when we celebrate the 100th anniversary of the restoration of the state of Lithuania, Marijampole has been announced the cultural capital of Lithuania and thus special design medals had been created for the running event.

More than 40 employees of UAB Juodeliai and their family members crossed the finish line upon finishing various distances. This year, the little runners were really active (9 children of the Company’s employees participated in the race for children).

UAB Juodeliai, which has been participating in the running event since the very first year, was one of the most involved organizations as every year. Some of the employees participating in the run became the winners: second and third places were taken in the 5 km in different age groups. We invite you to view the photos and enjoy good emotions.

29/03/2018 /  UAB Juodeliai traditionally participated in contact fair VGTU Career Days 2018

VGTU Career Days 2018 is the largest career contact fair in Vilnius lasting nearly two months. It is a place where the most talented students and promising business and public sector organisations meet. It is estimated that the event attracts over 5,000 participants.
