The Donostia Protocol to ensure language rights is one of ELEN’s flagship projects. The project was led by the Secretary-General of Kontseilua and ELEN Vice-President Paul Bilbao.

The Protocol is a standard-setting tool written with input from ELEN member organisations from across Europe on what are best practices in protection and development for our languages.

It was launched in December 2016 in Donostia and formed part of the city’s European Capital of Culture celebrations.
