How to get involved

Shine a light on diabetes
1 in 2 people with diabetes
don't know
they have it

Since the introduction of the blue circle in 2006, monuments, buildings and homes around the world have been lit blue for diabetes awareness on World Diabetes Day. Keep the tradition going by organising a blue lighting in your area this November.

From a local or globally recognised landmark to your workplace, home, front garden or bedroom, every lighting counts!
