This event is part of the British Academy's season on Identities & Belonging
Mae’r iaith Gymraeg yn rhan o’r hyn sy’n diffinio hunaniaeth Gymreig a Chymru fel cenedl. Hanner can mlynedd ar ôl y Ddeddf Iaith gyntaf, cyhoeddodd Llywodraeth Cymru yn ddiweddar ei huchelgais i weld y nifer o bobl sy’n siarad ac yn darllen y Gymraeg yn cynyddu i filiwn erbyn 2050. Mae’r drafodaeth hon yn ystyried y rôl sydd gan y genedl gyfan i’w chwarae i fynd i’r afael â’r her hon.
The Welsh language is part of what defines Welsh identity and Wales as a nation. Fifty years on from the first Welsh Language Act, the Welsh Government recently announced its ambition to see the number of people speaking and using Welsh reach a million by 2050. This discussion considers how the whole nation has a role in fulfilling this challenge.
This event will be predominantly in Welsh with simultaneous translation into English
Organised in partnership with the Learned Society of Wales and Bangor University
Free, booking required
As our public events are free, not everyone who registers for tickets attends. To make sure we have a full house we allocate more tickets than there are seats. We do our best to get the numbers right, but unfortunately we occasionally have to disappoint people. Admission is on a first come, first served basis, so please arrive in good time for the start of the event.
