A Lecture Hall in honour of Vigdís

In the language centre there will be a special room dedicated to the work which Vigdís Finnbogadóttir has contributed towards languages.

Vigdís has always been an active spokesman for the importance of languages, her Icelandic mother tongue as well as foreign languages, for individuals and society as a whole, both on a local and a global scale. This has always been an integral part of her work as a teacher, theatre director, President of Iceland and as UNESCO’s first and, so far, only Goodwill Ambassador for the Languages, a position she has held since 1998.

The lecture hall will be open to the public.
