Language learning is happening at many levels – in childcare centers, in the school system (K-12), and in the public and private sectors; session 3 reviews what happened in past, what’s happening now, and what is needed to happen in the future to set a target that will increase the number of Inuktut speakers.

There are many Language resources being utilized to assist in the promotion, preservation and revitalization of Inuktut such as books, music, TV and radio programs and other cultural materials. Session 4 will show how effective these resources can be. In order to continue promoting and supporting the widespread use of Inuktut, language planning needs to be paramount so that there is a conducive environment for use of Inuktut. Session 5 follows a motivational process where participants can set objectives, realistic targets and activities.

There are many creative ways being used to revitalize Inuktut. This session will impress the importance of grassroots initiatives and the significance of collaboration along with the need for communities and government to collaborate and work together.

A shift to be more positive and change attitudes is needed as some communities are becoming complacent and choosing English over Inuktut. This session will take a cultural perspective and find the balance in attitudes and look at the promotion of the benefits of bilingualism with the understanding that it is acceptable to speak Inuktitut.

A framework / structure is required so that people can come away from the conference with knowledge and tangible ways and strategies to make things happen. In this session, Speakers will provide “how-to’s” and inspire participants through sharing their examples. This will lead to developing realistic and achievable goals and strategies that will strengthen the use and preservation of Inuktitut for the long term.
