Observance of the International Mother Language Day (IMLD) 2024
21 February 2024, 1600-1800 hrs,
Conference Room - 4, United Nations, New York
Language serves as a powerful and unifying tool to connect people irrespective of their socio-economic and
cultural differences. It transcends geographical barriers and brings people together to work for the greater cause
of humanity. Thus, the power of language is universal. Each year, on 21 February, International Mother
Language Day (IMLD) comes as a reminder of this power and the need for preserving the uniqueness of
respective human societies and promoting their distinct values embodied in their languages.
The Day is being observed globally since 2000, following a proclamation by the UNESCO General Conference
in 1999, declaring 21st of February as the International Mother Language Day. The initiative was taken by
Bangladesh in honor of the martyrs who made supreme sacrifice to uphold the dignity of their mother tongue
‘Bangla’ in a language movement that took place in Dhaka in 1952. UNESCO’s proclamation was
subsequently welcomed by UN General Assembly in its multiple consensus resolutions. By observing IMLD
each year, the UN aims to encourage linguistic diversity and multilingualism and highlights the importance of
fraternity of languages and cultures in building a peaceful, tolerant, and inclusive world.
The theme of this year’s International Mother Language Day is “Multilingual education is a pillar of
intergenerational learning”. Today, 40% of the world’s population does not have access to education in a
language they speak or understand. In some countries this figure rises to over 90%. Yet research shows that
the use of learners’ own language(s) in schools provides a solid foundation for learning, boosts self-esteem
and critical thinking skills, and opens the door for inter-generational learning, language revitalization, and the
preservation of culture and intangible heritage. This year’s celebration of International Mother Language Day
is meant to highlight the importance of implementing multilingual education policies and practices as a pillar
to achieve Sustainable Development Goal 4.
To celebrate the occasion, the Permanent Missions of Austria, Bahrain, Bangladesh, Bolivia, Romania, and
South Africa to the United Nations, in collaboration with the UN Secretariat and the UNESCO invite all to an
event, scheduled to be held on 21st of February 2024 at 1600 to 1800 hrs at Conference Room-4 of the
United Nations Headquarters in New York.

Observance of the International Mother Language Day (IMLD) 2024.pdf

  • 1. Permanent Mission of Bangladesh to the UN ESTADO PLURINACIONAL DE BOLIVIA M I N I S T E R I O D E R E L A C I O N E S E X T E R I O R E S Misión Permanente ante la Organización de las Naciones Unidas The Permanent Mission of Romania to the United Nations Permanent Mission of South Africa to the UN Observance of the International Mother Language Day (IMLD) 2024 21 February 2024, 1600-1800 hrs, Conference Room - 4, United Nations, New York Language serves as a powerful and unifying tool to connect people irrespective of their socio-economic and cultural differences. It transcends geographical barriers and brings people together to work for the greater cause of humanity. Thus, the power of language is universal. Each year, on 21 February, International Mother Language Day (IMLD) comes as a reminder of this power and the need for preserving the uniqueness of respective human societies and promoting their distinct values embodied in their languages. The Day is being observed globally since 2000, following a proclamation by the UNESCO General Conference in 1999, declaring 21st of February as the International Mother Language Day. The initiative was taken by Bangladesh in honor of the martyrs who made supreme sacrifice to uphold the dignity of their mother tongue ‘Bangla’ in a language movement that took place in Dhaka in 1952. UNESCO’s proclamation was subsequently welcomed by UN General Assembly in its multiple consensus resolutions. By observing IMLD each year, the UN aims to encourage linguistic diversity and multilingualism and highlights the importance of fraternity of languages and cultures in building a peaceful, tolerant, and inclusive world. The theme of this year’s International Mother Language Day is “Multilingual education is a pillar of intergenerational learning”. Today, 40% of the world’s population does not have access to education in a language they speak or understand. In some countries this figure rises to over 90%. Yet research shows that the use of learners’ own language(s) in schools provides a solid foundation for learning, boosts self-esteem and critical thinking skills, and opens the door for inter-generational learning, language revitalization, and the preservation of culture and intangible heritage. This year’s celebration of International Mother Language Day is meant to highlight the importance of implementing multilingual education policies and practices as a pillar to achieve Sustainable Development Goal 4. To celebrate the occasion, the Permanent Missions of Austria, Bahrain, Bangladesh, Bolivia, Romania, and South Africa to the United Nations, in collaboration with the UN Secretariat and the UNESCO invite all to an event, scheduled to be held on 21st of February 2024 at 1600 to 1800 hrs at Conference Room-4 of the United Nations Headquarters in New York.
