Languages meet Sport (L&S) for Regional and Minority Languages and Cultures is the third edition of the very successful “Languages meet Sport” European project that uses the passion for sport to motivate young and adult people to learn languages and meet other cultures (see Festival 2009-2010).
Languages meet Sport for Regional and Minority Languages and Cultures is supported by the EU Lifelong Learning Program with the aim of disseminating European best practices fostering language diversity and contributing thus to the mutual understanding of different cultures and communities.
L&S Festival for Regional and Minority Languages and Cultures will take place in Udine (Italy) and will offer all those who are interested in the dissemination of the language and culture of a territory an opportunity to present their projects, learn from others and develop a European Network in the field.
L&S Festival is open to schools, universities, sport clubs and cultural associations who wish to present their projects on Regional and Minority Languages and Cultures. It will be structured to offer areas for plenary sessions, panel sessions and workshops.
- Plenary sessions - to discuss the link between regional languages, identity of the territory and the value of sport and regional languages as factor of inclusion in the community
- Panel Sessions - to present European best practices promoting regional and minority languages and cultures through sports
- Workshops - to be actively involved in the language learning through activities and sports
- Conclusions - to develop a common idea in the promotion of regional and minority languages and cultures
