Several buildings around the world will turn their lights blue to raise awareness for autism and to commemorate World Autism Awareness Day on Saturday, April 2.

The historical and government houses in Tucuman, Argentina, the Colpatria tower and the Mayor’s house in Colombia, the emblematic Christ the Redeemer of Corcovado, Brazil as well as the Obelisk in Buenos Aires, are just a few of the more than 200 buildings around the world that will turn on their blue lights for autism.

On December 18, 2007, the United Nations General Assembly adopted resolution 62/139, declaring April 2 as World Autism Awareness Day, with the goal of bringing the world’s attention to autism, a disorder that affects tens of millions worldwide.
