International Indigenous Languages Decade IDIL In Estonia

An International Decade is an important cooperation mechanism dedicated to raising awareness of a particular topic or theme of global interest or concern, and mobilizing different players for coordinated action around the world.

In 2019, the United Nations General Assembly adopted a resolution proclaiming the period 2022–2032 as the International Decade of Indigenous Languages, based on a recommendation by the Permanent Forum on Indigenous Issues. The proclamation of the IDIL2022–2032 is a key outcome of the 2019 International Year of Indigenous Languages IYIL2019.
