Languages: a precious link to the past... and the future

The 10th International Mother Language Day (21 February) is not only an opportunity to celebrate language diversity and multilingualism. This year's celebration also coincides with the closure of the International Year of Languages, which has mobilized hundreds of partners worldwide for the protection and promotion of all languages, especially endangered ones. On this occasion UNESCO will launch a new edition of the Atlas of the World's Languages in Danger of Disappearing.
