March

World Down Syndrome Day

Date: 21/03/2019

Venue: Various locations around Australia and globally.

World Down Syndrome is celebrated on 21 March each year and the United Nations officially recognised the day for the first time in 2012.

People around the world celebrate the lives and achievements of people with Down syndrome, creating a global voice, advocating for the rights, inclusion and wellbeing of people with Down syndrome.

World Down Syndrome Day is a great opportunity to raise awareness about what it means to have Down syndrome and how people with Down syndrome play a vital role in our communities. It is an opportunity to highlight their strengths, their achievements, what they have to say, their active involvement in the community, their personal contributions to the community and just who they are!
