Breizh Amerika is partnering with Rising Voices and our friends at the Living Tongues Institute, First Peoples’ Cultural Council, Indigenous Tweets, Endangered Languages Project, and the Digital Language Diversity Project to use social media to promote and celebrate linguistic and cultural diversity on the internet.
In celebration of UNESCO’s International Mother Language Day 2018, we invite you take part in this new and fun challenge to take place February 14-21, 2018!
Mother Language Day was founded to promote and celebrate linguistic and cultural diversity around the world, with a special emphasis on indigenous, minority, heritage, and endangered languages.
Your Challenge: Join the movement and participate by creating an original meme in your mother language, add a hashtag, and share with others around the world.

The debate was organized by the mayor's office of Pluvigner, association Pluvigner-Patrimoine, with musical performances by Samuel Le Henanff, Niall O'Leary, and Tristan Le Govic. The debate led by Art Hughes (University of Ulster) and Daniel Carre (University of Rennes) was centered on the endangered status of Breton (Brezhoneg) and Irish Gaelic: history and evolution, current methods of conversation, and obstacles to preservation.
