International Mother Language Day 2020

International Mother Language Day (IMLD) is a worldwide annual observance held onĀ  February 21 to promote awareness of linguistic and cultural diversity and promote multilingualism. First announced by UNESCO in November 1999, it was formally recognized by the United Nations General Assembly in a resolution establishing 2008 as the International Year of Languages.

The idea to celebrate International Mother Language Day was the initiative of Bangladesh. In Bangladesh, the 21st of February is the anniversary of the day when Bangladeshis fought for recognition for the Bangla language.

We are inviting all students, faculty, and staff at Georgia Tech to take part in the event and indulge in some native food.
