Message 1: Reminder: UNESCO Register/ Language Preservation
From: Barbara Soukup <ling.diversityunesco.org>
Subject: Reminder: UNESCO Register/ Language Preservation
Allow me once more to bring to your attention the ongoing Call for
Submissions to the 'Register of Good Practices in Language Preservation,' a
database project that was launched by UNESCO's Endangered Languages
Programme in the summer of 2005
The purpose of this Register is to collect experience reports concerning
any kind of language preservation effort, from speaker communities,
governmental and non-governmental organizations, academic experts, etc. Our
goal is to provide a free online practice-based source of information as an
aid and encouragement for future language preservation projects.
To this end, I would like to solicit your support in the following ways:
(1) If you are or have been involved in a language preservation project,
please consider submitting to our Register, to share your knowledge and
experience gained with other current and future project agents.
(2) Please disseminate the Register's URL
(www.unesco.org/culture/endangeredlanguages/goodpractices) and our call for
submissions as widely as possible, using your relevant networks and
contacts, so that we can reach any persons and organizations who may be
interested in submitting.
(3) If you have administrative access to any websites related to language
preservation, please consider setting up links to our Register website
Thank you very much for your support!
