Mentrau Iaith Cymru & Twf Saint Davids Campaign 2014
Welsh: Belongs to you and me
21 February – 1 March
About the Campaign
‘Welsh: Belongs to you and me’ is an exciting pilot campaign by Mentrau Iaith Cymru and Twf. The main purpose of the campaign is simple – we will be promoting key messages regarding the Welsh language within the online community with the objective of promoting local events and celebrations throughout Wales.
The Campaign’s Message
The messages that will be shared during this campaign are ones which Twf and Mentrau Iaith Cymru share throughout the year. However with the St David’s Day period being such an important time of year this is an excellent opportunity for us to celebrate the Welsh language and bilingualism in Wales.
The main messages are:
-The Welsh language belongs to everyone
-There are endless social and cultural benefits of speaking welsh and being bilingual
-Bilingualism is a skill for life
-The majority of the world speak more two languages – be proud of your bilingualism
