Participants at the AGM
Each member organization of IFHOHYP is welcome to send 1 delegate and 1 observer. Other interested organizations or individuals can participate at the AGM as an observer; however, since space is limited, this will be on a first-come, first-serve basis upon receiving a submitted application before the indicated deadline.
To help with the organizational costs, participants will be asked to pay a fee of 50 euros. Participants will also be expected to cover their travel costs. Ideally, member organizations should cover those costs for their representatives at the AGM. Zurich is easily accessible by train (Zurich Main station) and by plane (Zurich International Airport) from anywhere in the world.
Location & Accommodation
Zurich is Switzerland’s center of economic life and education. Located in the heart of Europe, the city offers all the modern aspects of a cosmopolitan metropolis, without sacrificing its natural side.
The accommodation will be at the Hearing and Language Centre in Zurich, where we also carry out the activities and the AGM. The center is a school and dormitory for young deaf and hard of hearing students. Since it is holiday time during our stay, we have the center for us. The center offers comfortable facilities. We will also have all the necessary infrastructure such as induction loop and it is barrier-free.
Address: Frohalpstrasse 78, 8038 Zürich
