World Autism Awareness Day – 2 April 2014

World Autism Awareness Day – 2 April 2014

‘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 are proud to have initiated and hosted Australia’s participation in this campaign for the past three years.  This year we were thrilled to see cities and towns across the country turn blue on April 2!

As part of the campaign, Autism Awareness Australia hosted an event in Sydney. What a wonderful night we had down at Sydney Harbour for World Autism Awareness Day! We’d like to thank all of our supporters who joined us, both in person and in spirit online!

For 2014 we decided to light the Sydney skyline with a fabulous fireworks display to symbolise that the sky is the limit for all individuals on the autism spectrum! 

Together we can all shine a light on autism…
