EKEGUSII ENCYCLOPEDIC PROJECT
BULLETIN, JULY 2010
In the final session of the Language Activism workshop at Infield 2010, we talked about using the media more effectively to spread the message about language endangerment.
It is important to make the world aware of the wide-ranging international efforts which are under way to support endangered languages and linguistic diversity.
The participants were asked to create headlines for possible press releases to the media in their regions and/or countries.
The Infield coordinators suggested that participants could take their activism forward by using these headlines as ideas for writing press releases. The headlines themselves will be sent to the wider InField community.
All Infield participants were invited to write press releases, contact radio and TV stations, utilize social networking sites and other media outlets to draw attention to this important work.
