International Mother Language Day 2023

International Mother Language Day 2023

In 1999, Bangladesh proposed the idea of commemorating International Mother Language Day, which was approved during the 1999 UNESCO General Conference. Since 2000, this day has been celebrated worldwide.

UNESCO recognises the significance of cultural and linguistic diversity in building sustainable societies. Preserving the differences in cultures and languages promotes tolerance and respect for others, which is crucial for peace.

Languages play a vital role in transmitting and safeguarding traditional knowledge and cultures in a sustainable manner. However, linguistic diversity is increasingly at risk, with many languages disappearing.

This year, the EIC organised several events to mark the day and showcase the variety of languages spoken by its students and staff. The enthusiastic participation of everyone was impressive, with students sharing their traditions and even singing opera in Chinese. Congratulations to all, and let us continue to celebrate our remarkable diversity.
