The main purpose of the Siena branch is to inform people about bilingualism and language learning. We also organise targeted events and projects in order to: build networks between practitioners, policy makers, stakeholders and families to promote good linguistic practices and to develop joined strategies across different sectors of the society; provide general information and advice about bilingualism to general public, including requests for consultation from individuals and families; encourage linguistic and cultural diversity in Italy through the promotion of the linguistic and cultural heritage of minority communities; map immigrant languages, especially in schools; and support heritage languages maintenance and translanguaging practices in schools.
