Events of the European Day of Languages

Languages Matter

Pilot project, 26.09.2017 , Ljubljana, Slovenia

All languages matter, yours as well!
In the network of European countries, which celebrate their linguistic and cultural diversity on 26th September each year, Slovenia is joining in. On the European Day of Languages, the events are planned to take place at thirty primary and secondary schools as well as universities in their immediate environment. The main ideas of these events is to share the importance of learning different languages and their cultures, which is the most attractive way to learn languages. They will raise issues of maintaining languages and their cultures as well as the potenitals of building the coexistence of diversity in a dialogue and in a mutual understanding.

In the project LANGUAGES MATTER (JeŠT), financed by the Ministry of Education, Science and Sport and the European Social Fund, 32 partners are trying to create a plurilingual-friendly environment in Slovenia, and the European Day of Languages is the first act of reaching this goal. This is the first major event of the six-year project (2017-2022), which will through its interventions, research and studies design models and instruments to support a democratically-based langauge and culture policy of Slovenia.
