International Mother Tongue Day
Happy International Mother Tongue Day! Hosted by the United Nations, the day seeks to shine a spotlight on how language and multilingualism can promote inclusion, diversity and education. Languages fulfil an important role in maintaining cultural diversity and opening the floor for societal interconnection. This day is dedicated to co-operation, providing inclusive education and preserving heritage, all in the name of benefiting science, art, technology and sustainability.
At Project Centre, we’re thrilled to cultivate an organisation that values international ideas and practices, and this is reflected in our diverse workplace. From Provence, Milan, Manchester, Galway, a London, the Spanish coast, Scotland and everywhere in between, our team is made up of a wide range of cultures. Whether we’re learning the latest in Flood and Water Management from the tidal measures in Copenhagen or teaching Kuwait delegates our own practices here, we have a long history of building bridges to share knowledge and promote intercultural relationships.
To promote awareness within Project Centre of this remarkable day, we have set up a competition to identify all the languages used by our staff with a prize for the first one to guess all of them correctly!
We’re pleased to be celebrating this fantastic day and hope to see a more open exchange of international ideas when the pandemic is over.
