Great Towers and landmarks worldwide unite in global show of support for Australia on Jan. 26

The CN Tower, fellow members of the World Federation of Great Towers, and landmarks around the world are uniting to raise awareness and show support for Australia as the country works to fight and recover from devastating wildfires.

On the night of Australia's national holiday, January 26, the CN Tower will be among many landmarks to light in the country's national colours of green and gold. Still others plan to join in the effort through social media and online. To date, towers and landmarks that have confirmed their participation include:

  • The Berlin TV Tower, Berlin, Germany
  • Busan Tower, Jung Gu, Busan, South Korea
  • The Calgary Tower, Calgary, Canada
  • The CN Tower, Toronto, Canada
  • The Eiffel Tower, Paris, France
  • The Empire State Building, New York, USA
  • Euromast, Rotterdam, Netherlands
  • La Grande Roue, Montréal, Canada
  • N Seoul Tower, Seoul, South Korea
  • Niagara Falls, Niagara Falls, Canada/USA
  • One Liberty, Philadelphia, USA
  • Pavillon Bonsecours, Montréal, Canada
  • The Reunion Tower, Dallas, USA
  • The Royal Liver Building, Liverpool, UK
  • The Shard, London, UK
  • SkyTower, Auckland, New Zealand
  • The Tokyo Tower, Tokyo, Japan
  • Toronto sign, Toronto, Canada
  • The Willis Tower, Chicago, USA

"Australia is facing some of the worst wildfires ever seen. The scale of the ongoing crisis and its impact on the environment, people and wildlife concerns all of us around the world," says Peter George, the CN Tower's Chief Operating Officer. "Under the circumstances, we felt a global show of support would be meaningful to many. Not only would it convey a powerful message of support to all Australians, especially those on the front lines, but it can hopefully inspire the world to take action."

For anyone looking to take action, donations may be made to several organizations, including the Australian Red Cross (www.redcross.org.au/campaigns/disaster-relief-and-recovery-donate), the NSW Rural Fire Service (https://www.rfs.nsw.gov.au/volunteer/support-your-local-brigade), and WIRES Wildlife Rescue (https://www.wires.org.au/donate/emergency-fund).
