The Cornish Language Forum will meet twice annually.  It will be chaired by the current Bardh Meur as a civic representative of the Cornish language community.

The Cornish Language Forum’s main role is to provide an opportunity for Cornwall Council to consult with a broad, informed and interested audience on its plans and its operational progress in terms of promoting language policy and planning activities.

It will also serve as a mechanism that holds Cornwall Council to public account for its language activities.

Its meetings should also be viewed as occasions to celebrate successes, share good practice and promote the use of Cornish in general.

The functions of the Cornish Language Forum will include the following:

  • To receive information annually regarding Cornwall Council’s intentions regarding its planned language policy and planning activities and comment upon those intentions
  • To receive information annually regarding Cornwall Council’s language policy and planning activities in the previous operational year and comment upon progress
  • To serve as a platform for events and activities that celebrate and promote the Cornish language, share good language planning practice and develop new ideas for further initiatives in the promotion of Cornish.
