FRANCOPHONIE FESTIVAL : MARCH 2015
The International Day of Francophonie (march 20th), is well known to Francophones and Francophiles of all stripes and results, each year, in a huge number of events organized around the world throughout the month of March.
In Hong Kong also, the celebration will extend throughout the month of march, giving birth to the Francophonie Festival 2015, presenting concerts, show, talks, networking events, conferences, films festivals.
What is FRANCOPHONIE ?
The International Organisation of La Francophonie unites 80 countries in one of the biggest linguistic zones in the world. Its members share a common language but also the humanist values promoted by the French language. The French language and its humanist values represent the two cornerstones on which theInternational Organisation of La Francophonie is based.
The International Organisation of La Francophonie was created in 1970. Its mission is to embody the active solidarity between its 80 member states and governments which together represent over one-third of the United Nations’ member states and account for a population of over 890 million people, including 274 million French speakers.
Its actions respect cultural and linguistic diversity and serve to promote the French language, peace and sustainable development.
IOF has concluded 33 cooperation agreements with international and regional organisations and has established permanent dialogue between the major international linguistic zones (the English, Portuguese, Spanish, and Arab-speaking zones).
