Colour Blind Awareness Day 2021 – TACBIS on social media

On Colour Blind Awareness Day (6th September 2021), TACBIS project partners European Football for Development Network, Colour Blind Awareness, the National Football Associations of Portugal, Iceland and Romania, as well as Oxford Brookes University and Danish football club Randers FC raised awareness for Colour Blindness and the implications it has on the beautiful game. Many EFDN members and other football and sport organisations joined the awareness-raising campaign.

TACBIS project

The TACBIS project consortium has organised a unique drawing competition for children across Europe for today’s Colour Blind Awareness Day 2021. The aim of this campaign is to highlight the issue of colour blindness from the viewpoint of a child, for whom drawing can be a challenge if the pencils/pens/markers do not have the colours written on them and to bring colour blindness to the attention of the participants, their parents, as well as club and foundation staff members. 

Drawings of the professional footballers Tyrone Mings (Aston Villa) and Billy Sharp (Sheffield United FC) will be turned into Christmas lights soon.
