Euroregion Elbe/Labe

Neighboring language from the start!

The Saxon-Czech cooperation project aims to introduce even more children from the Saxon and Czech border areas to the language and culture of the neighboring country at an early stage.

Thanks to the cross-border cooperation of all four Saxon-Czech Euroregions and with professional support from LaNa and Tandem , model approaches for a neighboring language pool that is integrated into everyday life in daycare centers on both sides of the border will be tested, further developed together and sustainably anchored in the period from 2024 to 2026
