OBJECTIVES

The objectives of the European Linguistic Diversity Forum are:

  1. To reclaim linguistic diversity and its management as one of the key issues for the present and the future construction of a more democratic, cohesive, inclusive, peaceful and sustainable Europe.
  2. To analyse and evaluate the effects of current world changes on the sustainability and survival of European language communities, to review existing tools and initiatives for the preservation and promotion of European minoritized languages, to analyse the obstacles to progress, and to propose positive measures.
  3. To promote international European collaboration between civil society, the world of research and culture, and regional, state, European, and multilateral bodies, in favour of legal agreements and treaties for linguistic diversity.
