International Day of People with Disability (IDPwD) is held on 3rd December each year.
IDPwD is a United Nations sanctioned day that is celebrated internationally. It aims to increase public awareness, understanding and acceptance of people with disability and celebrate the achievements and contributions of people with disability.
The Australian Government has been supporting IDPwD since 1996 and provides funds to promote and raise awareness of the day around Australia.
People are encouraged to take photos of their local landmarks when they light up and to share them on social media with the #idpwd hashtag.
