TOKYO SKYTREE, operated by TOBU TOWER SKYTREE CO., LTD. (Headquarters: Sumida Ward, Tokyo), is being illuminated from October 24, United Nations Day, in a collaboration with the United Nations Information Centre (UNIC) Tokyo using a lighting pattern specially designed in the 17 colors of Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) to boost momentum toward achieving SDGs and to commemorate this year’s 75th anniversary of the UN’s founding.
In conjunction with the special lighting display, the UNIC Tokyo posted a video message by its Director, Kaoru Nemoto. The video has been published at the TOKYO SKYTREE official YouTube channel（https://youtu.be/-J6-lxmstO4 ）. Former swimmer Hanae Ito was invited for discussions with Ms. Nemoto on the relationship of sports to SDGs and UN efforts. The resulting video is also available at the official TOKYO SKYTREE YouTube Channel
In order to encourage people to take more actions to achieve the SDGs by 2030, a trailer of the UNproduced documentary “NATIONS UNITED, Urgent Solutions For Urgent Times” is being shown on the large public video screen at Sky Arena, on the 4th floor of the TOKYO SKYTREE TOWN complex.
