The Prague Manifesto
The Prague Manifesto (or Manifesto de Prago) is a set of seven widely-shared principles of the Esperanto movement. It was drafted at the 1996 World Congress of Esperanto which occurred in Prague by officials from UNESCO (United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization) and attendees of the congress. The document emphasizes democratic communication, language rights, preservation of language diversity, and effective language education.
