The WFD promotes awareness of human rights and sign language by hosting a variety of events around the globe. We also encourage our members to host and attend community events.

WORLD CONGRESS

The World Congress is an official event of World Federation of the Deaf organised by an Ordinary Member. World Congresses are designed to bring together delegates from member national associations, youth organisations and other participants who seek to partake in global exchange of information and furtherance of the WFD vision, mission and goals. It follows a day after General Assembly and is organised every four years.
