The Tower of Hope at the Canadian Museum for Human Rights is going green tonight and tomorrow, but it’s not for an environmental cause.
The tower atop the museum will be lit green in honour of St. Patrick’s Day on Monday. For two nights, buildings around the world will join in Tourism Ireland’s “Global Greening” celebration.
The CMHR is one of eight Canadian landmarks to take advantage of this opportunity for global publicity and awareness as part of a massive campaign on traditional and social media.
It will also mark the first time coloured lights have been used in the Tower of Hope, so the museum’s facilities management team will be monitoring them with interest. The lights will go on at dusk.
