Illuminating Barangaroo after dark on Human Rights Day – Monday, December 10
International Towers will join the global movement on Monday, December 10 to mark the 70th anniversary of the signing of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. We will lit up blue all throughout the week.
The Towers will be lit brilliant blue in a visible display of the innovation community’s support for the defence and protection of human rights.
Embracing a culture of diversity and inclusion in every aspect of its operations, International Towers reflects the principles of the watershed declaration, including Article 2 which states:
“Everyone is entitled to all the rights and freedoms set forth in this Declaration, without distinction of any kind, such as race, colour, sex, language, religion, political or other opinion, national or social origin, property, birth or other status.”
Currently on display in the lobbies of the towers is the “Faces of Australia”, exhibition which showcases Australia’s diverse cultural heritage and the contributions immigrants make to the community.
This isn’t the first time International Towers has flicked the switch to support universal causes. The external facades of the towers were lit up purple on “Wear It Purple Day” on Friday August 31, 2018. The whole week, leading up to the day, was marked with a nighttime display to radiate Purple in support of LGBTIQ rights.
International Towers will join global landmarks going #Blue4HumanRights, including New York’s Empire State Building, Coca-Cola London Eye in London, the historic Beirut National Museum in Lebanon, and St. Paul's Church (Paulskirche) in Frankfurt - the symbol of German democracy.
