European minority or regional language digital activists will take turns managing @EuroDigitalLang, a new Twitter account highlighting the role technology and the internet can play in the promotion and the revitalization of languages across Europe. A key aim of the Twitter campaign will be to recognize the commitment of language activists who are leveraging all types of digital and online media to raise the profile of their languages and cultures online and attract a new generation of speakers.
As Twitter hosts, campaign participants will share their insights and perspectives on European minority or regional languages, including their history, current use in online and offline contexts, challenges and new strategies of revitalization. While technology can play an important role, it is only part of a larger contemporary context that affect the vitality of indigenous languages.
