Blue Monument Challenge - World Diabetes Day

World Diabetes Day - 50 days to go til Nov 14, 2011

The 2011 edition of the Blue Monument Challenge, one of the main campaign initiatives aimed at attracting the general public's attention to the global diabetes epidemic, continues to gather momentum.

Here are the latest monuments and buildings around the world that have confirmed that they will be lighting in blue in November:
  • Arco de la Calzada, Guanajuato A.C., Ciudad de León, Mexico
  • Century Tower, Florida, USA
  • Havering Town Hall, Romford, Essex, UK
  • Jet d'Eau, Geneva, Switzerland
  • Manas Statue, Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan
  • La Techada, Capilla del Monte, Argentina
  • Soldiers and  Sailors Monument, Indianapolis, USA
  • Texas Diabetes Institute, San Antonio, Texas, USA
This year the International Diabetes Federation is encouraging blue lighting's to be associated with the promotion of the International Diabetes Federation's International Charter for the Rights and Responsibilities of People with Diabetes - a landmark document aimed at stopping all discrimination that people living with diabetes currently face.

If you succeed in confirming a blue lighting, make sure to send all the details to wdd@idf.org. A full list of confirmed lighting's will shortly be available on www.worlddiabetesday.org
