We are pleased to inform you that the Council of Europe and SWEBLUL are
organising a Conference:

*Celebrating the 10th Anniversary of the European Charter for Regional
or Minority Languages:*

/Minority languages as instruments for the cultural development of regions/

on 17 October 2008

at the Kulturens Hus, Lulea, Sweden

The conference will take stock of the situation of Europe's regional or
minority languages and the role they play in regional cultural
development, with an accent on the how different local and regional
authorities across Europe support these languages and how NGOs perceive
the Charter and its monitoring mechanism. It is being organised in
Luleå, Sweden, as part of the Liet Lavlut Festival, a cultural festival
featuring a full programme of events running from 16­18 October,
reflecting the cultural and linguistic diversity in the Arctic regions
and Europe.

You will find further information on the conference and Liet Festival,

We hope that you will be able to join us in Lulea!
