Our executive committee wants to associate our Federation to today’s celebration of L’Organisation des Nations unies pour l’éducation, la science et la culture #MotherLanguageDay.
While most scientific communities across the world adopted English as the lingua franca in their activities, our Federation strives to support multiple languages.
Since 1996 through our biannual #world congress (https://www.ifsam.org/conferences_new/), we have shown our commitment to #language #diversity & respect of #IndigenousLanguages, by encouraging submissions & presentations of scientific papers in at least one of the languages of the community hosting the congress. More specifically, in addition to #English, we have welcomed paper submissions and presentations in:
– #Chinese in 2008 & 2018,
We owe this commitment to language diversity to our past presidents and congress chairs, who enshrined & displayed our Federation contextualized approach to management at the worldwide level. We aim to continue this approach in our current #online activities.
