Austria’s answer to increasing language diversity in a multicultural Europe
A conference on the results of the Language Rich Europe project 2012
The Language Rich Europe project analyses policies and practices for multilingualism in 20 European countries. Primary data on the use of national, foreign, regional/minority and migrant languages in education, the media, the economy and public services and spaces were collected. The results will be presented at the Language Rich Europe Index – an European index that will be available in over 20 languages in print as well as on an interactive webpage.
The launch event will present the results for Austria for the first time in public. Experts from policy and practice are invited to discuss the implications for the Austrian context.
The main language for the event will be German, with the exception of one presentation in English.
