Display and Showcase the French Language
Daniel-Pierre Bourdeau, from the Élargir l’espace francophone
team at the Centre de leadership et d’évaluation (CLÉ)
In this workshop participants will be able to discuss the importance of showcasing French culture and heritage in their community. The workshop will present various tools to promote economic development, as well as French heritage and culture.
In particular, there is a presentation of the video, "Pourquoi se joindre à la francophonie", and of examples of collaborative actions aimed at promotion of both the French language and the vibrancy of the communities. The workshop is intended as a place for wide-ranging discussion of pertinent examples that could support and inspire Francophones and Francophiles to revitalize their community in the Americas.
Raising awareness of the existence of French presence and history is the foundation to developing the Francophone and Francophile Cities Network. The aim of this workshop is to make its existence known to the greatest number of people.
