About (Geneva) - World Languages - M/S Mint

Languages play a crucial role in the daily lives of people. Through language we communicate with the world, define our identity, express our history and culture, learn, defend our human rights and participate in all aspects of society. People use language to preserve their community’s history, customs and traditions, memory, unique modes of thinking, meaning and expression, and to construct their future. Despite their immense value, languages around the world continue to disappear at an alarming rate. The United Nations declared 2019 the Year of Indigenous Languages (IY2019) to raise awareness of these unique languages and to appreciate the important contribution they make to our world’s rich cultural diversity. On 21 February 2019, which is the observance of International Mother Language Day, United Nations Postal Administration will issue three mini-sheets of six stamps to commemorate world languages. The stamp sheets feature greetings in 41 languages. They were designed by Sergio Baradat (United Nations).
