Nurturing the democratic debate.  
Ten languages die every year in the world, and out of the 6,000 spoken on the planet, half are now threatened. 40 international experts and 20 NGOs will work to identify the most appropriate means and the most successful experiments concerning the safeguarding of linguistic heritage.
They will also draft proposals to mobilise international opinion and define UNESCO’s strategy in this area.
