IATE term of the Week: European Neighbours’ Day

May 30, 2014 11:00 am


Last weekend was European Neighbours’ Day, and since its launch in Paris in 2000, the festival continues to rise. In fact, the party is now celebrated all around the world by millions of people – 1400 partner cities, housing organizations and associations are participating in over 36 countries with 16 million participants.

The impressive development of Neighbours’ Day is living proof that the desire to promote a “better living together” has no borders!

Each year, the Neighbours’ Day keeps growing with new partners. The celebration is the opportunity to reconnect with the values of solidarity, brotherhood and friendship that should be at the forefront of neighbourly relations.

We invite you to suggest the equivalent terms in the missing EU languages, or alternatives to the existing term in your language if you consider the proposed term inaccurate. Provide your answer with a reliable reference and an accurate definition and/or context if possible.

A terminologist for the language in question will revise your answer and decide whether to validate them. Given the implications of the process, a delay is to be expected.
