The seminar offers lectures and a panel discussion on the revitalization of Sámi language and future language needs.
The seminar aims to draw attention to the UN International Year of Indigenous Languages in Sápmi. During the seminar we will hear proffesional voices about the situation of Sámi languages, how the Sámi languages can be strengthened, transferred to coming generations and what linguistic needs exist for the future.
