Landmarks Turn (Red)

Product (Red) movement has entered its third year of turning city landmarks red around the world in honour of World AIDS Day. Cities and landmarks turning (RED) in 2011 included the Empire State Building in New York, The London Eye, the Sydney Opera House, the Wrigley Building in Chicago, the CN Tower in Toronto and Table Mountain in Cape Town. The landmark lightings were designed to help raise awareness and support for the (Red) goal of eliminating mother-to-child transmission of HIV by 2015. The lightings were in many cases connected to local awareness-raising events.
