The theme of International Mother Language Day 2021 “Fostering Multilingualism for Inclusion in Education and Society” recognizes that languages and multilingualism can foster inclusion, and that the Sustainable Development Goals focus on leaving no one behind.
UNESCO believes that education, based on the first or mother tongue, should start from the earliest years of schooling, as early childhood care and education is the foundation for learning.
The IEAL prepares the activity around native languages as part of the project: Other languages, other worlds: native languages in Mexico, directed by anthropologist David Lagunas and Aline Lara, a project within our Institute.
