|The popularity of Pan-Celtism gave rise to the formation of Celtic political and social organizations, and among these organizations is the prestigious group of the Celt Congress. The Celtic Congress aims to encourage the use of the Celtic languages in the Celtic Nations of Brittany, Cornwall, Isle of Man, Scotland, Wales and Ireland. |
In 1902, with a vision to promote the use and appreciation of the Celtic Language, the Celtic Congress was founded. Its first convention was held in Birkenhead Eisteddfod when it was officially launched in 1917. Each nation of the Celticity has their own designated branch and each branch is responsible for implementing the objectives of the Celtic Congress. This non-political organization, which is entirely different from the Celtic League, aims to integrate the Celtic language, its ideals and its culture into the modern society of the Celtic Nations. The Celtic Congress also promotes the unity and cooperation between the six nations.
To make these goals a reality, it holds an annual convention in the designated branch of the Celtic Congress.
The Celtic language is one of the most evident characteristics of the Celtic culture. With organizations such as Celtic Congress whose advocate is to promote the pure Language of the Celts, it is sure to preserve the uniqueness of the Celtic culture that each Celtic nation is most proud of.
