World Down Syndrome Day (WDSD) is a global awareness day which has been officially observed by the United Nations since 2012. Each year the voice of people with Down syndrome, and those who live and work with them, grows louder. But there is still so much more we can do.
Down Syndrome International (DSi) encourages people all over the world to choose your own activities and events to help raise awareness of what Down syndrome is, what it means to have Down syndrome, and how people with Down syndrome play a vital role in our lives and communities.
The internet is a powerful tool for raising awareness and DSi encourage people to celebrate World Down Syndrome Day through your own websites, blogs and social networking sites.
However, DSi want to create a single meeting place where everyone can share their experiences and advertise their activities.
For this purpose they created a dedicated website www.worlddownsyndromeday.org. where people are able to register and share details of their activities and events with the global community. Plus they can also participate in DSi’s various annual WDSD initiatives. To look at events in the UK visit here.
Join DSi cause to create a single global voice for advocating for the rights, inclusion and well being of people with Down syndrome on 21 March.
