World Down Syndrome Day (WDSD) 2021

DSMIG supports World Down Syndrome Day (WDSD) 2021

WDSD is a global awareness day recognised since 2012 by the UN, which takes place on 21 March every year.

On WDSD people who have Down syndrome, their families, friends and advocates, work to raise awareness of what Down syndrome is, what it means to have Down syndrome, and how people who have Down syndrome play a vital role in lives and communities.

The theme for WDSD 2021 is ‘CONNECT’ – the focus will be about improving connections to ensure that all people who have Down syndrome can CONNECT and participate on an equal basis with others.

The COVID-19 pandemic has forced many of us, individuals and organisations, to adapt the ways that we connect and communicate with each other.

It is important to find new ways of connecting that are accessible to everyone.
