International Mother Language Day

I missed a “Celebrating Diversity” posting on an annual event in Guelph celebrated by the Bengali Community of Guelph.  February 21st is International Mother Language Day.  Councillors Vicki Beard and Kathleen Farrelly attended a flag raising in front of City Hall to mark the occassion.

This is a link to a great article on the day. Click here.

    Although International Mother Language Day is now over, you may be interested in the contribution, made by the World Esperanto Association, to UNESCO’s campaign for the protection of endangered languages.

    The following declaration was made in favour of Esperanto, by UNESCO at its Paris HQ in December 2008. http://portal.unesco.org/culture/en/ev.php-URL_ID=38420&URL_DO=DO_PRINTPAGE&URL_SECTION=201.html

    The commitment to the campaign to save endangered languages was made, by the World Esperanto Association at the United Nations’ Geneva HQ in September.
