about signX

signX sets up innovative projects for the promotion of education and communication with Sign Language and the use of digital technology in Switzerland.

Our mission has four main focus points, that facilitate the use of digital technology.

  • Education: Continued and improved access to education for deaf and hard-of-hearing people. We focus on creating knowledge together and organizing it in such a way that the knowledge generated involves a learning process as well as a clear structure (collaborative knowledge management).

  • Sign Language: Our services are based on Sign Language in Switzerland.

  • Inclusion: We want to build communities - for everyone who wants to learn more and share knowledge. We can share, help and interact with each other, regardless of our hearing status.

  • Resilience: Resilience means having the ability to overcome a difficult life situation. Therefore, communication and education are some of the most important tools to promote resilience. For this reason Sign Language is an important basis for deaf and hard-of-hearing people.

In Switzerland, within the field of education, people who are deaf or hard-of-hearing do not have easy access to primary, secondary and tertiary education. Sign Language is still not well-known in society. The inclusion which Switzerland ratified UNO BRK in 2014 has some catching up to do in order to give deaf and hard-of-hearing children, teenagers and also adults the opportunity to build up a strong resilience for themselves and to secure a successful future.

Education and communication with Sign Language are a matter of course for all of us - this is our vision and this is what the signX association is committed to!
