EWB defends European culture, which has been a mantra of Europhiles since the early days of European integration.


While the role of the European Union is to defend, through the rule of law and respect for human rights, a certain idea of European values and civilization, cultures remain essentially national, mainly due to multilingualism. 


Yet multilingualism is far from being respected by European institutions. With this in mind, Philippe Cayla proposed giving Multilingualism Day, now September 27, a higher profile by assigning it the more emblematic date of Pentecost Day (or Whit Monday).
