Civil Society

Grass-roots organisations have always played a central role in changing societies, often providing services in areas not covered yet by public policy and services. In Europe’s quickly evolving economic, social and cultural landscape, the third sector is often at the forefront in social work and leading in initiatives to facilitate the integration of migrants, for instance.

Thanks to the experience built up, civil society organisations have a wealth of knowledge to share with policymakers and social services also in terms of policies for multilingualism. They can make a crucial contribution to encouraging both the public to embrace multilingualism, and decision makers to put in place effective frameworks in local and regional administrations, formal and non-formal education, public services.

Poliglotti4.eu helps civil society organisations by:

  • Pooling their experiences in dealing with and promoting language learning, and multilingualism;
  • Providing guidance on promotion of multilingualism at grass-roots level;
  • Facilitating contacts to relevant policymakers wherever possible.
