The 2017 ECSPM symposium, attended by about 100 language professionals, was organised with the support of the Hellenic Open University and the School of Education of the National and Kapodistrian University of Athens. It addressed three themes a) the social, aesthetic and linguistic literacies for the creative participation in European societies of displaced populations and people in adversity; b) the role of translation, technology and linguistic resources for the safe-guarding of multilingualism in Europe; c) The work of other ECSPM member and partner organisations. Below is a link to the programme and links to the speakers’ PPT presentations.
