Take action

Get involved in whatever way you like.
Together we can make a difference.

Share your story

The best way to promote awareness of Down syndrome is for people with Down syndrome to share their own stories in their own words.

Get informed

Learn about Down syndrome from people with Down syndrome. Share your new knowledge with your freinds, family and colleagues.

Advocate for change

Check out our resources which will help you to advocate for inclusion in your school or your work place or to advocate in society.

Give a little (or a lot)

Make a donation to Down Syndrome International (DSi) or to a Down syndrome organisation of your choice and feel great!


By doing something that you love or by setting yourself a new challenge you can raise money to help improve the lives of people with Down syndrome around the world.

Join the #LotsOfSocks campaign

Get people talking about Down syndrome by wearing ‘Lots of Socks’. These might be mismatched socks or your craziest socks, whatever it takes to start a conversation.

Take part in an event

Find events going on in your area and online that you can join or host your own event.

Light up a landmark

Landmarks around the world light up for WDSD – take a look and share your landmark with us.

Write or record something

Why not make a video and upload it to DownTV? Or write about what #InclusionMeans to you in a blog?

Share on social media

Social media is a powerful tool enabling us to connect with people around the globe. Together our voices are the loudest!

Each year the voice of people with Down syndrome, and those who live and work with them, grows louder.

Join in with us to create a single global voice for advocating for the rights, inclusion and well being of people with Down syndrome on 21 March.
