Celebrate the European Day of Languages in Brussels

To mark the European Year of Culture Heritage 2018, the European Commission will organise the conference 'Multilingual Education and Cultural Expression' in Brussels, on 27 September, to illustrate how our languages are a significant part of our cultural heritage. This will also be an occasion to celebrate Europe’s rich linguistic diversity.

Many interesting pedagogical approaches are to be found in bilingual regions and multilingual classrooms around Europe. This topic will be highlighted through a panel discussion with representatives from Finland, Ireland, Luxemburg and Spain.

The programme for the event, developed in partnership with the Brussels branch of EUNIC, the European Union National Institutes of Culture and the NPLD, the Network for Promotion of Linguistic Diversity, also includes video clips, linguistic testimonials from the current European Capitals of Culture, poetry readings, and music.

After the conference, there will be a lunch buffet in the exhibition area in the conference venue.
