We want to get the world talking about World Down Syndrome Day! How can you help? By wearing lots of socks! But not just any socks… wear brightly coloured socks, long socks, printed socks, 1 sock, even 3 socks for 3 chromosomes. If you do not normally wear socks, wear them! Wear them at home, nursery, school, college, university, work, play, travel, on holiday, wherever you are on 21 March! Here's how you can get involved.
International days and weeks are occasions to educate the public on issues of concern, to mobilize political will and resources to address global problems, and to celebrate and reinforce achievements of humanity. The existence of international days predates the establishment of the United Nations, but the UN has embraced them as a powerful advocacy tool. We also mark other UN observances.
