2021 International Epilepsy Day
February 8, 2021
International Epilepsy Day 2021 will take place on Monday, February 8. This is a powerful opportunity to highlight the problems faced by people affected by epilepsy, their families and carers, in every region of the world.
A highlight of International Epilepsy Day 2020 was seeing a number of landmarks and buildings around the world turn purple to mark the day! The Lega Italiana Contro de l’Epilessia (LICE) coordinated events in Italy that included having the Colosseum in Rome and a fountain in Trieste light up in purple to raise awareness. Tower 42, the fifth tallest skyscraper in London, projected the International Epilepsy Day logo from the top of the building as well as raising awareness among everyone inside the building through electronic posters and signage in lifts.
