Action Day – Social Inclusion
April 2, is the dedicated Action Day on Social Inclusion during the #Morethanfootball Action Weeks.
Thursday 2nd April is the thirteenth annual World Autism Awareness Day, whereby we all come together to recognise and celebrate not only the rights of people with Autism but also promote social inclusion in general. Use the day to promote your related projects and show how you make your stadium more accessible, create a friendly environment and help that everyone feels accepted in football and society.
Autism Awareness day
Autism-friendly events and educational activities take place throughout April, aiming to increase the understanding and acceptance of people with autism as well as to foster worldwide support and inspire a kinder, more inclusive world. The rights of persons with autism must be taken into account in the formulation of all responses to the COVID-19 virus. So, on this World Autism Awareness Day, let us all stand together, support each other and show our solidarity for people with autism. Find out more here.
