On Wednesday, March 14, a handful of notable Vancouver buildings and landmarks will be glowing blue.
B.C. Place, the Sails of Light at Canada Place, the Vancouver Lookout and Harbour Centre, Science World, TELUS Garden, the Birks Building, the Kalen Capital Building, the Leckie Building, the district markers at the Vancouver Convention Centre and the Olympic Cauldron arms will all be lit to show support for our oceans.
It’s an initiative held in part with the 2018 GLOBE Forum: North America’s largest and longest-running Leadership Summit on Sustainable Business.
The forum is being held from Wednesday, March 14 to Friday, March 16 in Vancouver and showcases how businesses, governments, and civil society could be working together towards a cleaner economy.
In addition to the Vancouver landmark being ‘lit’, the three-day exhibition also includes one of the world’s most highly acclaimed nature photographers, a number of inspirational conservationists, and businesses all working towards sustainable solutions.
Nancy Wright, Chief Operating Officer at GLOBE, shares that she’s “proud that these Vancouver landmarks and buildings are literally shining a light” and it reminds “us that we need to protect what we love”.
Dr. Scott Sampson, CEO of Science World explains that “it’s essential to [ensure] that the next generation can enjoy one of the world’s greatest natural wonders”.
The 2018 GLOBE Forum will be held over the next three days at the Vancouver Convention Centre.
