|“SANA 2019: Civil Society Network for Indigenous Languages” unites organisations involved in the preservation and revitalization of indigenous Finno-Ugric languages in the Baltic Sea Region. The project overlaps and supports the goals of the UN-proclaimed International Year of Indigenous Languages 2019, to the implementation of which project partners will provide substantive contributions. The project brings together the following 7 partner organisations: Association “ECHO” (Karelia) as the lead partner, Centre of Support and Public Diplomacy of Indigenous Peoples “Young Karelia” , the Karelian Language House (Republic of Karelia), the Community of the Small-Numbered Izhorian People (Shoikula), Centre for Development of Indigenous Peoples “URALIC” and Seto Cultural Fund (Estonia) and the Saami civil society organisation “Giellabalggis” (Finland). The project is funded by the Baltic Sea NGO programme of the Nordic Council of Ministers.
