How to get involved

Shine a light on diabetes
OVER50%of type 2 diabetes
can be prevented

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!
