Afûk is a member of the Network to Promote Linguistic Diversity (NPLD)
The main goal of the NPLD is to raise awareness at European level of the importance of language diversity. NPLD stimulates the sharing of knowledge and best practice between boards, policy makers, executives, scientists and experts from all over Europe through meetings and seminars.
“Thanks to this membership we have direct links with other language promoting organisations in Europe, we can exchange knowledge and work together in the field of language learning, language policy and promoting language”, says Mirjam Vellinga, project manager at the Afûk. “That will bring us more innovation and more financial possibilities, because we can apply for European programmes, like Creative Europe and Erasmus+. By combining forces we can also more easily promote the interests of minority languages and multilingualism and make sure that it is higher on the national and international agenda of governments and other organisations.“
