More than 85% of the world’s alphabets are in danger of extinction. Their loss will mean the loss of the wisdom, history and sense of identity of the culture that created them. A global movement among indigenous and minority groups now aims to reclaim their language, dignity, and right to self-determination. Led by: Tim Brookes, founder of the Endangered Alphabets Project.
