More Than a Million - Welsh Language Citizenship for All

Cliciwch yma i ddarllen y fersiwn Gymraeg o'r dudalen hon.

We are fully confident, if the next government is willing to follow the right steps, that the target of one million Welsh speakers will be achieved, by 2050 at the latest.

As we are confident that the next government can take the appropriate steps to achieve a million speakers, we believe the government should introduce a vision of ‘more than a million speakers’ in order to normalise the Welsh language as the language of our nation in all aspects of life.

‘More than a million’ as a vision does not refer primarily to increasing the target of the number of speakers (though there will be a need to focus on that as well) but rather to deepening the agenda by concentrating on everyday use of the language in our communities, workplaces and public services, and extending Welsh to all, and not just the lucky few. In our engagement process, many people have referred to the barriers that some groups face in gaining access to the language—including geographic, economic, informational or social class barriers.

This is what leads us to further call for ‘Welsh language citizenship for all’ to ensure that everyone, without exception, can learn, experience and use the language in a meaningful way in their everyday lives.

We are very excited to share with you our new, ambitious, innovative vision - read it below:
