ALC, UPV-EHU and Basque Government sign an agreement for the recovery of Quechua language in Peru
Agirre Lehendakaria Center, the Basque Government and the University of the Basque Country (UPV/EHU) have signed an agreement for the recovery of the Quechua language in Peru. To that end, they will take as a reference the municipal plans approved in many Basque towns, as well as the Basque Language Strategic Plan (2013-2017).
First, the parties involved will advise and assist the Cusco Municipal Government in the development of the Quechua Language Recovery Plan, which will include the main goals and actions to be carried out.
Several working groups will also be created with representatives of local authorities, organizations and citizens willing to take part in the revitalization process of the Quechua, in order to analyze in depth the scope of work: city council, education, leisure, business, restaurants…
Finally, the Commission for the Promotion of the Quechua Language will be constituted, representing all the collectives committed to its recovery.
Concurrently, ALC, the Basque Government and UPV/EHU Sociolinguistics experts will organize several seminars and conferences around the issue.
In this way Agirre Center continues to work on intervention and the recovery minoritized languages as we do in Okinawa.
