The EU speaks your language - EU Council

The exhibition "The EU speaks your language" moves to the Council of the EU (LEX building).

"The EU speaks your language" was produced by the EESC in house, in cooperation with the Directorate for Translation of the EESC/CoR and was launched in September 2018 to mark the 60th anniversary of Regulation 1/1958 entering into force.

"The EU speaks your language" presents the key role of translation in safeguarding the supreme goals of diversity, equal opportunities and democratic legitimisation.

The exhibition travels back in time to 1958, to the first legal act of the EEC/EU, to highlight the historical significance of Regulation 1/58 whilst featuring a modern approach to that which it symbolises at its core.

It was designed to be a touring exhibition, as a tribute to a multilingual Europe.

The Council of the EU (Language Library, LEX building), where it will be displayed from 5 June until 31 October is its fifth stop.
