The Inclusion, Mobility and Multilingual Education Conference – 2nd call for proposals
Language is inseparable from our way of being, our thoughts, our feelings, our joys and much more. It is through our language that we show who we are. If our language disappears, the whole sociocultural foundation of our community of speakers is put at risk. On Easter Island, the Rapa Nui language no longer has a place in the socio-economic development of our community.

Languages matter for the identity of individuals. Language, as sources of creativity and vehicles for cultural expression, they are also important for the health of societies. Not least, languages are factors for development and growth.
UNESCO Bangkok is pleased to share the second call for proposals for the Inclusion, Mobility, and Multilingual Education Conference: Exploring the role of languages for education and development. As you can see from the second call for proposals, the proposal submission deadline has been extended to 3 March 2019.
