The United Nations House brings together under one roof a family that speaks in various languages and vibrant accents. The Conference Services Section of ESCWA will join the United Nations family this year in celebrating International Mother Language Day.  
Join us at the ESCWA Library on Thursday, 21 February 2019 at 10:00 a.m. to celebrate the beauty of our mother tongues. 

We will first announce the winners of the Polyglot Competition, who will be selected from participating staff. A short film will then be screened, featuring ESCWA staff members. Please bring a book, a painting or a tune reminiscent of your home country to share a taste of your local culture with your colleagues and enjoy a taste of theirs.
