Bundeselternverband gehörloser Kinder e.V. (= Federal Parents’ Association of Deaf Children)
We are the only nationwide representation of families with deaf and hard of hearing children – regardless of whether and with which aid they are provided. Parents who are looking for advice, who want to orient themselves after the initial diagnosis or who want advice on the educational situation of their children will find what they are looking for with us. We advise at eye level and speak from experience – from parents to parents. We see ourselves as a voice for the interests of our children towards politicians and as a partner in the network of professional associations.
A holistic approach is important to us: the person is the focus. The diagnosis “hearing impaired” must not be viewed solely from a medical point of view. Our goal is to achieve the best possible quality of life and support for our children – this includes establishing successful age-appropriate communication as quickly as possible.
Deutsche Gehörlosen-Jugend e.V. (= German Deaf Youth Association)

With different information posters and flyers we also present the exciting programmes for the coming months. Do you have any questions or suggestions about the DGJ? Feel free to come to us directly! You can even take part in the competition for DGJ members. Have we made you curious? Then come to our information stall!
DGS- Korpus- Projekt (= German Sign Language corpus project)
The DGS Corpus Project compiles a dictionary of DGS and publishes conversations and narratives in DGS that were collected by recording 330 deaf people from all over Germany in 2010-2012. We, a team of deaf and hearing staff, work at the IDGS of the University of Hamburg and present the dictionary and the Public DGS Corpus at our stand. Anyone who wants to show us their signs from the field of social media can also join us there.
The fashion industry must think and work differently in the future.
We show how! With our sustainable fashion brand, we want to set an example against fast fashion and the associated environmental pollution, especially that of our oceans.
The fashion industry is the second worst industry in the world next to oil. No money is allocated for environmental protection in the textile industry.
Our goal: Against illegal fishing and for active participation in environmental protection. By 2030: For every product sold from our collection, 5 to 10% will go to an environmental organisation.
Deafness, Language and Learning Lab (D2L)
How do deaf and hearing impaired children learn sign language(s)? How can bimodal bilingual education be improved? How can one become a teacher for deaf and hearing-impaired children?
In the Department of Sign Language and Audio Pedagogy at UHH we are researching these questions. Do you want to know how we do it? Would you like to try out an experiment yourself? Curious? Then come and visit us at our stand. We look forward to seeing you!
Institut der Deutschen Gebärdensprache und Kommunikation Gehörloser (= Institute of German Sign Language and Communication of the Deaf)
The Institute for German Sign Language and Communication of the Deaf at the University of Hamburg introduces itself: We offer two degree programmes, various projects and a lot of Deaf Space!
On the one hand, we offer the degree programme Sign Language Interpreting (B.A. and M.A.), with the aim of training certified sign language interpreters. And secondly, you can choose the exciting degree programme Sign Languages (B.A. and M.A.) here. This involves the theoretical and practical study of the sign language of deaf people, in particular DGS, in all areas. This includes language teaching, Deaf Studies, linguistics and much more. We have a well-stocked library, state-of-the-art language labs and even an EEG lab where we can study what happens in the brain when people sign.

The project “Digital support for the professional integration of deaf people” is funded by the Federal Ministry of Labour and Social Affairs. The aim of the project is to support deaf employees and job seekers in the labour market. We are an intercultural and interdisciplinary team of deaf and hearing people working in Bremen, Hamburg, Landshut, Dortmund and Berlin. The Sign4All lexicon is intended to facilitate access to specialist signs and terms from various professional fields. To enable the sign language community to contribute to the lexicon, we are building a sign suggestion app.
