The World Federation of the Deaf (WFD) and the United Nations Office at Geneva (UNOG) are organising a webinar on 23 September 2021 to celebrate the International Day of Sign Languages. It is gathering a panel of high-level experts from the WFD, UNOG and State-Parties. The purpose of this webinar is to raise awareness and empower States Parties on the importance of sign languages. This webinar also aims to guide States Parties on what they can undertake to achieve and provide sign languages to everyone.

“The International Week of Deaf People has been celebrated during the last full week of September. This week, we come together to recognise that deaf people have our own communities, our own cultures, our own languages, sign languages, which unite us all.” – WFD

This year’s theme for the International Week of Deaf People is “Celebrating Thriving Deaf Communities”. Deaf communities have been expanding and thriving throughout the years and giving us all strength, now is the time to celebrate their incredible endurance at the local, national and international level.

This is an important week for the recognition of deaf people, it is vital for deaf communities and deaf organisations. This falls under the key principle, “Nothing about us, without us!”.
