UN Campaigns and Consultant Status

UN Campaign "Orange the World"

Every year, UN Women and its subsidiary Say No UNiTE organise a 16 day long campaign to “End Violence against Women”. This is a global initiative, and is activated both by the UN but also at grassroots level, by NGOs and other organisations willing to participate.

In 2015, the campaign ran from 25 November (International End Violence Against Women Day) to 10 December (International Human Rights Day). The overall campaign theme is ‘Orange the World’, and participating countries often light up important monuments and buildings in orange in recognition of this. Photos from 2015 are available on the Say NO UNiTE Facebook page.
