New Welsh Language Strategy

New Welsh Language Strategy

Welsh flag

The Assembly Government is currently reviewing its Welsh Language strategy, 'Iaith Pawb', which was published in 2003.
The review is needed because
  • there have been changes and developments since Iaith Pawb was published; and
  • it is also preparing a Welsh Medium Education Strategy and seeking legislative competence over the Welsh Language.

Key issues

The future of the language was discussed in a public forum organised by the Welsh Assembly Government, and attended by the Minister for Heritage, at the National Eisteddfod of Wales in Bala in August.

Officials have discussed Iaith Pawb, and the key issues that should form part of a future Welsh Language strategy, with the Welsh Language Board and organisations working to promote the use of the language.

And now we want your views.
