'Light it up blue' is a global campaign that sees thousands of iconic landmarks, cities and towns around the world turn blue on April 2 to recognise World Autism Awareness Day. The campaign highlights the pressing need for greater public education and awareness of autism in our community.
We're proud to have initiated and hosted Australia’s participation in this campaign for the past three years and in 2014 we'd like to see all of Australia go blue on April 2!
Come on Australia show us how you’re going to turn it blue on April 2!
Send us an email and let us know what you’re doing in your local community. We’ll be sharing all the details through our social media and on the website.
Make sure you check out our Events page for updates as they come in!
