Forum on Language Policy “Language Policy in Europe: Myths and Reality”
13 October 2022 (Thursday)
 
Following the EFNIL conference, it is proposed to hold a discussion with the representatives and the Executive Committee of EFNIL and the representatives of Lithuanian governmental and non-governmental organizations on 13 October. During the discussion, the EFNIL organisation, European language institutions and the language situation in different countries would be introduced. The Lithuanian public lacks information on language policy in different EU countries; therefore, during the meeting, it would be useful to provide such information and discuss the possibility of a more active inter-institutional cooperation.
 
The main purpose of this event is to present the EFNIL organisation and the situation of languages to the Lithuanian public, and to use the conference to disseminate information and seek opportunities for collaboration.
 
The meeting would end with a press conference.
