Tynged yr Iaith yn Sir Gâr 2021? / Fate of the Language in Carmarthenshire 2021?
30/9/17 – 10am
Llyfrgell Caerfyrddin / Carmarthen Library
This forum will happen in Welsh but translation can be arranged with prior warning
- There will be a full review of the council's Local Development Plan next year, how can we ensure it protects local communities instead of increasing the profits of housing developers
- Does more need to be done to enable young people to stay in their communities to live and work and to be involved in shaping the future of the county?
- How will the process of moving more of the county's schools along the language continuum to ensure that all pupils in the county develop the ability to communicate and work in Welsh continue?
- Do you see the need for leisure activity to happen in Welsh if the language is to be a full part of the lives of young people in Carmarthenshire and what is the role of Leisure Centres, private providers and community clubs in this?
- Has enough been done so far in order to restore the Welsh language as the main language of the county? Is there a need to increase the momentum over the next four years?
