We want to raise awareness of encephalitis on World Encephalitis Day by turning global landmarks red on 22nd February.

Our Lights Camera Action campaign is an ambitious project for a smaller charity such as ours which is why we need your help to approach the owners of landmarks and buildings where you live and work.

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

How Can I Help?

1. Identify a landmark 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.
