Švęskite Europos kalbų dieną kartu su mumis!

800 milijonų europiečių iš 47 Europos Tarybos valstybių narių yra skatinami išmokti daugiau kalbų būdami bet kokio amžiaus, mokydamiesi mokykloje arba ne. Tikėdama, kad kalbų mokėjimas yra įrankis siekiant tarpkultūrinio bendradarbiavimo ir supratimo apie mūsų žemyno kultūrinį paveldą, Europos Taryba skatina daugiakalbystę visoje Europoje.
Europos Tarybos, įsikūrusios Strasbūre, iniciatyva, Europos kalbų diena švenčiama kasmet rugsėjo 26 dieną nuo 2001 metų.

2019 - International Year of Indigenous Languages

Languages play a crucial role in the daily lives of people, not only as a tool for communication, education, social integration and development, but also as a repository for each person’s unique identity, cultural history, traditions and memory. But despite their immense value, languages around the world continue to disappear at an alarming rate.With this in mind, the United Nations declared 2019 The Year of Indigenous Languages (IY2019) in order to raise awareness of them, not only to benefit the people who speak these languages, but also for others to appreciate the important contribution they make to our world’s rich cultural diversity.
