Global Village is one of several global landmarks invited to participate in the #LightItBlue initiative.

Global Village is celebrating everyday heroes around the world by taking part in #LightItBlue, a worldwide campaign to show support for healthcare professionals and essential workers in the fight against Covid-19.

Global Village is one of several global landmarks invited to participate in the #LightItBlue initiative and shine a beacon of support. Following last Thursday’s tribute, Global Village will continue to show its support as part of #LightItBlue every Thursday evening at 8pm to encourage further regions to participate in the campaign.

#LightItBlue began in the United Kingdom in March 2020 as a way to pay tribute to the country’s National Health Service (NHS). Landmark buildings, venues and communities were lit blue in tribute to those battling the Coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic. It has since been adopted in other regions around the world, and it was on April 16, that the initiative made an appearance in the Middle East.
