National relay for the European Day of Languages

The function of a national EDL Relay is to act as a multiplier for organisations, schools and associations, circulating:
  • information communicated by the Council of Europe (for example the press release of the Council on the Day, which the Relays are invited to translate into national/local languages, updates on the website);
  • promotional materials - posters, stickers etc. provided by the Council of Europe every year in significant quantities for event organisers.
