Everyone should speak at least two languages, their mother tongue and Esperanto.

As a neutral international language, Esperanto as a second language for all can significantly strengthen the integration and solidarity of Europeans. Unlike all ethnic languages, Esperanto is perceived on the personal and political level of citizens as the best means of communication and understanding for real transculturality, democratic bilingualism and ecological conformity. The workshop is intended to be a forum for information and learning about this language. Its competence, applicability and current use will be presented – from the perspective of active Esperanto speakers and from the perspective of integration into the language policy of the European Union.
