Plans are underway to turn the world #UNBlue!

To celebrate the70th anniversary of the United Nations, iconic monuments, buildings, statues, bridges, and other landmarks across the globe will be lit up blue on UN Day, 24 October, to promote the UN's message of peace and dignity for all. World famous landmarks from Australia’s Sydney Opera House to the Great Pyramids of Giza in Egypt, from the statue of Christ the Redeemer in Rio de Janeiro to the Empire State Building in New York, will take part.

Participating in the Turn the World UN Blue campaign offers the unique opportunity to help unite global citizens, promote the message of peace, development and human rights, and showcase your commitment to the ideals and principles of dignity and prosperity for all.
