Worldwide response to the Global Call to Action for Heritage Language Education

March 21, 2024



It has been one month since the Global Call to Action for Heritage Language Education was launched by the HL Global Think Tank. Are you curious what the response has been so far?


Our press release about the Global Call to Action on this site was viewed more than 600 times, and there have been a vast number of pledges for support on social media (including our own). Below you can see some examples showing how far the reach has been!


We hope this inspires you to pledge commitment to the Global Call to Action and to spread widely, if you haven't yet!
