Language awareness

In this area of work, the Pro-Language Platform seeks to raise awareness and promote the use of Catalan. Catalan language is and must be the language of the street, with prestige, identified with fun, opportunities, welcoming... In a nutshell, it must be everyone's language. It is an area which to a large extent underpins many of the activities in which our organisation works.  

The main objective of this area is to create awareness among our country's population of the importance of the social use of Catalan language.
