IDIL 2022-2032


A Global Movement in Support of Indigenous Languages

The United Nations General Assembly declared the period of 2022-2032 as the International Decade of Indigenous Languages (IDIL 2022-2032). The aim of this decade is to protect, support, revitalise and promote Indigenous languages. By creating a joint global movement, the goal of this decade is to put a halt to the gradual decline of Indigenous languages globally.

The Rutu Foundation is also part of this global movement, as a fervent supporter of mother tongue education, as well as cultural and linguistic diversity. We do this amongst others through our ILED program: a global, collaborative Network on Indigenous-led Education. For more information on the main activities of ILED, have a look here.

On this page, we have accumulated relevant resources and tools for the promotion of Indigenous languages. We hope you join us in celebrating and protecting Indigenous languages, and that this place offers a useful starting point.
