Flash mob for diabetes

Raise diabetes awareness in your town or city by taking part in the World Diabetes Day Flash Mob Challenge!

A flash mob is a group who organize themselves, using electronic media such as cell phones or the internet, to gather together in a public place, behave in a predetermined manner for a predetermined amount of time, and then quickly disperse. View some examples.

Help us make this a coordinated global celebration by getting your friends, families and colleagues together on 13 or 14 November and organising a special World Diabetes Day performance in a local square, commercial centre or other public place in your area. You could do a dance, do a physical activity (eg. jumping, exercising), form a blue circle, or just shout out awareness messages to alert the public on the urgent need to ACT ON DIABETES. NOW.

We invite you to:

Make sure to have someone on hand to film the occasion and share the video with us
