UNESCO International Mother Language Day
International Mother Language Day (IMLD) was proclaimed by UNESCO's General Conference in November 1999. The International Day has been observed every year since February 2000 to promote linguistic and cultural diversity and multilingualism. The theme of International Mother Language Day is to promote the preservation and protection of all languages used by peoples of the world. (United Nations)
