World Down Syndrome Day: overcoming stereotypes and celebrating diversity

World Down Syndrome Day, celebrated on March 21st, is a global initiative dedicated to raising awareness and promoting inclusion for individuals with Down syndrome. This date, the 21st day of the third month, symbolizes the triplication of the 21st chromosome, which leads to Down syndrome.




On this day, we come together to celebrate the incredible achievements, abilities, and uniqueness of individuals with Down syndrome. It is an opportunity to challenge stereotypes and prejudices, fostering a more inclusive society that recognizes and appreciates the diverse talents and contributions of those with Down syndrome.


World Down Syndrome Day encourages everyone to #ChooseToInclude, emphasizing the importance of creating environments where individuals with Down syndrome can thrive, learn, work, and participate fully in community life. By promoting awareness and understanding, we can break down barriers and build a world that values and respects the inherent dignity of every person, regardless of their abilities.


Let us celebrate diversity, embrace inclusion, and work towards a world where everyone, including those with Down syndrome, can lead fulfilling lives and contribute to the richness of our global community.
