A Global Greening

Colosseum, Rome

Something is different about New York's Empire State Building... and Rome's Colosseum... and the London Eye. They’re gone green. Why would that be?

For all those folks who can't be in Ireland for St Patrick's Day on March 17, the world is turning green! Ancient monuments, shiny new landmarks and iconic artworks are all taking part in the #GlobalGreening in honour of Ireland and St Patrick. Here's how the world has gone green in recent years...
