The Permanent Mission of Bangladesh to the United Nations has taken an initiative to observe the International Mother Language Day jointly organized by the United Nations Headquarters and UNESCO.
The Permanent Missions of Bangladesh, Brazil, Canada, Egypt, Jordan, Lithuania and New Zealand to the United Nations along with the United Nations and the UNESCO are going to organize a virtual event to observe the “International Mother Language Day (IMLD)” on 22 February 2021 at 12:00pm-1:30pm.
The theme of this year’s IMLD edition is “Fostering multilingualism for inclusion in education and society”. The relevance and significance of language and communications to build inclusive societies and tolerance have assumed renewed relevance and significance during the unprecedented crisis of Covid-19 pandemic that the world is facing now.
The event will be an occasion to discuss how to uphold the inalienable right of people to their mother languages and promote multilingualism globally. It will also have a multilingual cultural component.
The event will be broadcast live on UN Web TV. On behalf of the organizers, Bangladesh Permanent Mission to the UN cordially invites you to enjoy the virtual live event. Web TV link: http://webtv.un.org/
