Saluton from Radaro!
Even though Radaro is generally centered on Esperanto in the US, it is good to keep in mind that Esperantists in this country are only one part of the entire community. In this week’s news, Filipo Dorcas invites us to think about, discuss, and participate in ways in which Esperantists can make local changes that add up to having wider reaching effects. As users of the most widely spoken constructed language, we Esperantists have a truly unique diposition to initiate positive change in the world that few other communities possess. After all, we chose to take up a language that was created to foster peace and communication, and that is an excellent starting point.
Be well, everyone!
Website of the Week
Here is a blog website that follows UN and UEA events. Although it is not an official UN blog, it is still cool to follow international developments by means of Esperanto.

Getting Medieval with Esperanto
If any of you have an interest in fantasy, the history of languages, world building, or conlanging in general then I recommend taking a look at this curiosity of a language: Arcaicam Esperantom.
It is essentially a hypothetical earlier stage of Esperanto’s development assuming it was a natural language, and yes, it is totally learnable! The link will take you to a book that is both a description and grammar of the language. If you want an extra challenge once you become experienced enough in regular Esperanto it could be a fun linguistic exercise to dabble in the “medieval” version.
NASK registration is OPEN!!!
What do you want to talk about at the virtual Landa Kongreso July 12-18?
What do you think that groups of Esperanto speakers should be involved in for a better world?
What do you want to support in your local Esperanto club? What is your club already doing?
Consider the seventeen sustainable development goals.
What is your vision for people working together for a better world? How can communication across the barriers of language, country, and culture assist in this important work?
If there is something that you feel passionate about, then let’s talk. And as Esperanto speakers we will do more than talk.
Stay tuned to Radaro for new developments in the Esperanto movement!
Amike / Sincerely, filipo (Phil Dorcas), president, Esperanto USA
