International Day of Sign Languages 2022

23. September 2022

During the 2022 celebration of the International Day of Sign Languages, the world will once again highlight the unity generated by our sign languages. Deaf communities, governments and civil society organisations maintain their collective efforts - hand in hand - in fostering, promoting and recognising national sign languages as part of their countries’ vibrant and diverse linguistic landscapes.

We invite all public places, public landmarks and official buildings, Presidential houses, City Halls, stadiums and others to be spotlighted in blue light on 23 September 2022. This event aims to unite the world, its citizens, communities and societies through shing a blue light on sign languages.
