When we say that AEGEE strives for a democratic, diverse and borderless Europe, we also refer to the language diversity, which is something that has to be valued and celebrated, and to the language barriers, which should be eliminated if we want to increase mobility and achieve a borderless Europe. If you also share these values, join the celebration of the European Day of Languages (EDL) and spread the AEGEE spirit!
Language skills are a necessity and a right for everyone – that is one of the
main messages of the European Day of Languages.
The overall objectives are to raise awareness of:
– Europe’s rich linguistic and cultural diversity, which must be preserved and enhanced.
– Language learning and the need to diversify the range of languages that people learn.
– The importance to be fluent in at least two foreign languages, and to encourage lifelong language learning in and out of school.
By navigating through the menu of this website, you will find information about the history of the EDL and past EDL events organised in AEGEE, as well as useful ideas and materials for organising your own EDL event. You can read more information about the EDL on the AEGEE Wiki and on the EDL website of the ECML.
