Policy Makers

Cross-border commercial exchanges and tourism have made language learning and language skills a priority for any region willing to make the most of the global economy. In Europe, awareness of traditional, regional languages and their importance for local communities and their identity has increased significantly over the last few decades, while native linguistic diversity has only been compounded by immigration.

Policy makers at all levels of governance are required to face these linguistic challenges, which are gaining more and more influence on the economic, social and cultural texture of every country.

They have the power to improve multilingualism policy: at EU level, by mainstreaming multilingualism in all policy areas; at national level, by mandating multilingual education and supporting lifelong learning; at local and regional level by implementing ML measures and initiatives in specific areas of public life.

Poliglotti4.eu helps policymakers by:

  • Collecting and sharing information on multilingualism policies, including best practice examples from different European regions and countries;
  • Providing direct assistance to improve multilingual practice in their constituencies through the project consortium members and the members of the Civil Society Platform on Multilingualism;
  • Organising a stakeholders meeting in order to provide policy-makers with expertise in the development, communication and implementation of multilingual policy at local and regional level.
