On Saturday 7 September 2013 at 10:00 hr a Forum on Language Planning for the Upper Sorbian language will take place in the House of the Sorbs (Serbski Dom) in Bautzen/Budyšin, Postplatz 2. Forum BautzenThe meeting is organised by the WITAJ Language Centre in cooperation with the project of the European language campaign “language diversity” of FUEN – the Federal Union of European Nationalities.

The main subject for the meeting is the issue of modern language promotion: how can I maintain a language and how can I raise the status and the image of a small language within the context of European linguistic minorities?

For the meeting we have invited interested Sorbs and Lusatian Germans who have the chance to discuss this subject in small groups too, for example about the use of language in the new media, in business and in tourism, but also the use of language in public. We look forward to have active contributions to the discussion and wish for good and interesting ideas.
