(UNESCO) General Conference and has been observed throughout the world since 2000.

Linguistic diversity is increasingly threatened as more and more languages disappear. Globally
40 per cent of the population does not have access to an education in a language they speak or
understand. Nevertheless, progress is being made in mother tongue-based multilingual
education with growing understanding of its importance, particularly in early schooling, and
more commitment to its development in public life.
The theme of the 2021 International Mother Language Day is “Fostering multilingualism for
inclusion in education and society”. UNESCO believes education, based on the first language or
mother tongue, must begin from the early years as early childhood care and education is the
foundation of learning.

The United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization was founded in 1945,
London, United Kingdom. UNESCO Headquarters are located in Paris, France and it Headed by
