International Mother Language Day has been celebrated every year since February 21st 2000 to promote linguistic and cultural diversity and multilingualism.
Languages are the most powerful instruments to preserve and develop 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.
