Join us for a candle pouring workshop with CandleXchange to celebrate this International Day of Peace.
Hey, have you ever felt like there’s a story inside you, waiting to unfurl its vibrant pages into the world, but you're holding back, unsure if the world is ready for its glow? It's high time we change that narrative, together. Right here, right now.
It’s time to gear up for Wear It Purple Day on the 25th of August. This year’s theme is more than a tagline; it’s a personal mission: "Write Your Story." This theme isn’t just a concept; it was dreamt up by the Youth Action Council, emphasising that it’s your time to rise, to stand tall, and to own your vibrant, beautiful truth.
Ever felt squeezed into a mold that just doesn't fit? Like the world’s pushing you to be someone else’s version of ‘normal’?
For young people who identify as LGBTQIA+, this theme is an anthem, a clarion call to take ownership of your narratives. It's about speaking about your experiences in your own authentic voices. Imagine a world where your story, your truth, your life, isn't just words but a beacon of hope and connection. Remember that rush of warmth the first time you saw someone who ‘truly’ resonated with your experience? That’s not a fluke; that's visibility, and it's transformative.
Pause for a moment: Can you recall the first time you saw someone who truly resonated with your experience?
Let’s talk community – the heartwarming, rock-solid kind, woven together through our shared stories. Picture this: Wear It Purple is more than a day; it’s a movement fostering these connections, assuring you that you belong, unconditionally and spectacularly, just as you are.
Here’s where the magic happens: by speaking from your heart, you do more than share your narrative. You contribute to a broader cultural shift towards greater acceptance and visibility for LGBTQIA+ individuals. Your story, when echoed into the world, can melt misconceptions and sow seeds of empathy and love like nothing else can.
Final question: Are you ready to be the fearless author of your own life’s story?
This Wear It Purple Day, on the 25th of August, let’s wear our colours with pride, share our stories loudly, and stand strong together. Pick up your pen, your voice, your courage – and let’s write a future where every story is celebrated.
Hey there, fellow champions of progress! As we approach the International Day of World's Indigenous People on August 9, let's take a moment to celebrate the vibrant cultures and invaluable contributions of our indigenous communities across the globe. It's not just about admiration, though; it's about taking action and being the change we wish to see. This year's theme, focusing on Indigenous Youth as agents of change and self-determination, opens up a world of possibilities. So, let's embark on this journey together and explore what Western society should consider in fostering a brighter future for all.
International Towers is Australia’s most progressive workspace, located on the harbour foreshore at Barangaroo, one of the world’s most sustainable commercial precincts, and Australia’s first large-scale carbon-neutral community.
The precinct is on track to deliver zero net waste to landfill, and be water positive by 2020. Currently, 90% of all waste is reused, recycled or repurposed, well above the industry average.
Our community sits within Sydney’s newest neighbourhood, a highly-curated, authentic precinct which has set new international benchmarks for design, wellness and environmental responsibility. International Towers is the most accessible workplace in Sydney, with direct, convenient access to every form of public and private transport, including Australia’s largest bicycle parking facility. Barangaroo Reserve and it’s six hectares of waterside parkland and walking tracks is only a short walk away.
Our dual towers - Two International Towers and Three International Towers - are home to a collective of game-changing, like-minded organisations. These include some of Australia’s most respected and innovative firms, industry disruptors, and emerging enterprises, brimming with bright minds and visionary leaders, sharing the same determination to make great things happen.
We actively engage with the enterprises within our Towers, supporting the community with innovative and inspired opportunities to learn, connect and collaborate with each other creating a progressive, dynamic environment that encourages creativity, innovation and sustainable progress.
