Developed by the translation and Linguistic Rights Committee, the Girona Manifesto is a ten point document designed to be translated and disseminated widely as a tool to defend linguistic diversity around the world. At PEN International’s 77th annual Congress the PEN General Assembly approved the Manifesto.

PEN members have translated the Manifesto into various languages; we encourage you to translate it into your own and continue raising awareness about the need to protect and promote linguistic diversity.

For more information read the press release from the 77th PEN International Congress.
