Starting on 2 September, the European Commission will publish a post every day in one of the 24 official EU languages on the Facebook, Instagram and Twitter accounts run by Directorate-General for Translation. The posts will highlight a quote or proverb in each language – with a focus on young people, since 2022 is the European Year of Youth.
Celebrate European Day of Languages by commenting, posting, sharing or re-tweeting (use the official hashtag #EDLangs).
On 26 September, this year’s multilingual poster featuring all 24 quotes and proverbs will be released.
The main event organised by the European Commission has youth at its heart. Entitled ‘Language competences at the service of youth’, it will take place in Brussels on 26 September from 12:00 to 14:00. It’s online, so you can easily connect from your laptop.
