International Mother Language Day

International Mother Language Day

International Mother Language Day, marked every February 21st, was created by UNESCO and promotes linguistic and cultural diversity. This isn’t just about words. Oh no. It’s about identity, culture and inclusivity. It champions the right to education in one’s mother tongue, and recognises how crucial it is for learners to kick-start their educational journey in the language they know best.


Supporting this day is more than a gesture; it’s a commitment to building inclusive societies. By valuing each language’s distinct identity, we can pave the way for more understanding and unity. Shouting about this cause, especially for speakers of minority and indigenous languages, helps everyone access learning – aligning with global goals to leave no one behind.
