The Municipality of Athens on Saturday, September 26, will join the celebrations for the European Day of Languages 2020 with an online treasure hunt.
Organized in collaboration with the EU National Institutes for Culture (EUNIC) and the European Commission, the treasure hunt will “take place” through an interactive map that will allow participants to “travel” around Europe.
“On Saturday, we will travel online from one European country to another, through an interactive map, to discover the fascinating world of languages and dialects,” the municipality said.
The map will be active on September 26, from 3pm to 9pm, offering people of all ages the chance to get in on the fun and solve riddles related to languages and cultures of European countries.
Participants will have to search for the answers on the websites of EUNIC members across Europe. The winners will participate in draw to claim many prizes offered by the EUNIC members in Greece. The names of the lucky winners will be announced via the websites of the EUNIC members participating in the event.
Celebrated annually since 2001, the European Day of Languages aims to encourage language learning across Europe.
In Athens, the event is held as part of the events for the 2nd Week of European Cultures that is organized by the EUNIC network in the Greek capital in collaboration with the municipality’s Athens Culture Net.
