Activities for #AutismDay2023 campaign 👏

As every year, Autism-Europe (AE) will be celebrating World Autism Awareness Day on April, 2 and throughout the month of April. 2023 also marks a special occasion as AE celebrates its  40th anniversary!

Thus, under the motto “Building an inclusive society for autistic people”, this year’s campaign will be an opportunity to reflect on the advances made so far for the autism community and the work that remains to improve the lives of autistic people.

In that context, we invite all our members and the autism community to join the campaign for #AutismDay2023 and take part in the various activities.

Take part in our competition for Word Autism Awareness Day 2023

To mark #AutismDay2023, AE is launching a photo competition to illustrate the perspectives of autistic people and their lived experiences, as well as how society can be more inclusive.

The deadline to participate is 27th February 2023 and each participant can submit up to 5 original photos.

We look forward to discovering the entries, and encourage you to read the Terms and Conditions of the photo competition to be aware of the requirements to take part in the competition.
