The lighting of the Montréal Headquarters of the International Civil Aviation Organization has been turned orange in support of the “Orange the World” 16 Days of Activism Against Gender-Based Violence Campaign (#16days and #OrangetheWorld). The campaign is led by UN Women.
“As Secretary General of a UN specialized agency, I would like to stress that ending violence against women is a fundamental and crucial objective for global society and for the entire UN system,” remarked Dr. Fang Liu, Secretary General of ICAO. “Colouring our headquarters orange to highlight this cause is aimed at raising awareness of these issues and contributing to progress on them, and is a move which has been strongly supported and encouraged by our member and Council State Delegations”.
More information about the campaign – and the initiatives that have been undertaken around the world in support of it – is available here.
