Introduced in 2007 by the United Nations, World Autism Awareness Day encourages the global community to take measures to raise awareness about autism throughout society and to encourage early diagnosis and intervention.
To show our support for World Autism Awareness Day and the Luxembourg Autism Foundation, KBL epb staff dressed in blue on April 2, 2017. The bank also illuminated its head office in blue throughout the previous evening as part of the international “Light It Up Blue” initiative.
These actions complement our earlier support of the Luxembourg Autism Foundation’s Open Day, which was marked by exchange, unity and tolerance. The day-long event included workshops on autism, guided tours, a crafts fair and music. Our staff assisted with the food and drink stands and wherever else necessary.
