Can you help us to raise awareness of encephalitis by turning landmarks red on World Encephalitis Day?

Our Lights Camera Action campaign is seeing us approach the owners of landmarks, buildings, bridges, schools, offices and shops across the world.

A bridge, monument or building which goes #Red4WED on 22nd February is a great way to raise awareness of encephalitis among friends, work colleagues and the general public in your home town or city.

Dr Ava Easton, Chief Executive of the Encephalitis Society, said: "World Encephalitis Day is the most important day in our calendar. It is a day when we can come together and shout from the rooftops about encephalitis and tell the world about this devastating condition.

"But we need your help to do this, so if you know of any landmark where you live that can go red, please get in touch with them and ask for their support."

How Can You Help?

1. Identify a landmark in your home town or city which lights up for different occasions.

2. Approach the owner by telephone, email or in person (COVID-19 restrictions permitting). We have put together a toolkit which gives you more information and a letter which can be downloaded and personalised and which tells you more about our campaign.
