International Mother Language Day (WATCH)

21 February is International Mother Language Day, an annual observance held to promote awareness of linguistic and cultural diversity and promote multilingualism.

2019 is also the International Year of Indigenous languages and Bush Radio is in the process of promoting and educating listeners about indigenous language.

“Languages are the most powerful instruments of preserving and developing our tangible and intangible heritage. All moves to promote the dissemination of mother tongues will serve not only to encourage linguistic diversity and multilingual education but also to develop fuller awareness of linguistic and cultural traditions throughout the world and to inspire solidarity based on understanding, tolerance and dialogue.”
