Interculturality and preservation of endangered languages – Liege – 17/12/2019 – 9am > 1pm
In order to protect the rights of indigenous peoples, the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) has proclaimed 2019 as the “International Year of Indigenous Languages” (https://en.iyil2019.org).
In the framework of this UNESCO and in UN ECOSOC accreditation of “Le Monde des Possibles”, we invite you to a debate on the links between multilingualism and the social inclusion of migrant. Participants in the various NPO projects and resource persons (academics..) will impulse multilingualism issues : learning the language of the hosting country and the future of the native language, multilingualism in public institutions, intercultural exchanges and the arts contribution into the inclusion process, language skills valued in the labour market.
We will propose a list of recommendations and concrete actions to promote multilingualism in Liège. Interested ? Send an email to email@example.com or contact Siham ASSRI on 00324/232.02.92 by 15 December 2019 at the latest, we will confirm your registration.
