The event was attended by a total of 31 deaf and hard of hearing participants from among university and secondary school students and members of associations of young deaf and hard of hearing people from the Czech Republic, Poland, Italy, Slovakia, as well as representatives of the European Union of Deaf Youth based in Brussels. The event was also attended by deaf and hearing teachers and lecturers from the Czech Republic and Poland, who are primarily involved in foreing language education of deaf and hard of hearing learners at different levels of education. The event took place thanks to the EU projects LangSkills II (2021-1-CZ01-KA220-HED-000023473) and Telč 22 (2022-1-CZ01-KA153-YOU-000070171).

Much emphasis was placed on appreciating Deaf culture.
