International Meeting in Canet de Mar
The Catalonian Esperanto Association and the Catalonian Association of Young Esperantists are organizing their yearly
internationalist meeting at Canet de Mar, on the sea coast just north of Barcelona, from the 29th of June to the 1st of
Canet de Mar will be celebrating its yearly Local Festival at the same time, and that's why the meetings' program will
adapt to the festivities so that all congressists can take an active part. There will be festive workshops of
traditional dance and popular culture.
In the framework of this interculturality there will be, among others, a lecture on the Catalonian system of accepting
emigrants in schools. There will also be games, excursions, and beach activities. This rich program will be assured by
lecturers such as Abel Montagut, Rubén Fernández, Víctor Solé, and Mon Cardona.
There will be a great excursion and seaside picnic on Sunday.
As usual, the program will be bilingual, in Espernto and Catalonian, so that everyone may participate, including
beginners in Esperanto.
