Hidden Disabilities Sunflower

Description of the initiative / best practice

The Hidden Disabilities Sunflower initiative is designed to promote inclusivity, acceptance, and understanding for individuals with non-visible or “hidden” disabilities. The initiative’s core involves people with hidden disabilities wearing a symbol, typically a yellow sunflower on a green background, on items like lanyards, caps, or pins. This symbol signals to staff and the public that the person wearing it may require extra assistance or accommodation. Ecsite is taking proactive steps to raise awareness and advocate for the Hidden Disabilities Sunflower initiative within its network of member institutions, such as the Esplora Interactive Science Centre in Malta. Ecsite is motivating its member science centers and museums to take inspiration from Esplora’s example and integrate the initiative within their establishments.
