Celebration of Mother Language

In the same way that biodiversity is important for the balance of life on our planet, language diversity may be important for the balance of cultures. An imbalance of cultures would result in the loss of some cultures. The fact that each high culture before us has come to an end, could be a warning that the diversity of culture itself is needed for mankind?s sole survival.

Mother Language Day, a date that was proclaimed by UNESCO in 1999, could function as a reminder to us, how important the appreciation of our own culture and origin is, and that it?s important to honour and celebrate everybody else?s heritage and culture as well.

Our mission is to bring the people of all nations together, to celebrate each and everyone?s mother language, because we think the importance to take care of this heritage is one, which affects us all. We also want to strengthen the day of celebration, the International Mother Language Day on February 21st, by reaching out to our political and philosophical pioneers.

BPCA, the Bangladesh PressClub Centre of Alberta, understands its organization as a hub for information about the International Mother Language Day. We invite everyone interested in this cause to connect with us.
