Orange Week 2020: Illumination de l'Hôtel de Ville
17.11.2021
Politics, policy and administration

As part of Orange Week 2021 – an initiative that aims to combat violence against girls and women – the City of Luxembourg invites the public to come and form an "orange" human chain at noon on Thursday, 25 November 2021 at Place Guillaume II in front of Luxembourg City Hall.

The City is urging the general public to come show solidarity and help raise awareness for this issue. To maximise the impact of the event, participants are asked to wear an orange item of clothing or accessory.

Other Orange Week 2021 initiatives

The City of Luxembourg will be taking part in orange Week 2021 with two initiatives: the illumination of a number of municipal buildings in orange, and the hosting of a special film screening and discussion, at the Cinémathèque.

From 25 November to 10 December, Luxembourg City Hall, Villa Vauban, the Grand Théâtre tower and the Ban de Gasperich water tower will be lit up in orange.

On Thursday, 2 December (18:30), the Cinémathèque will be showing the film "Take my eyes" ("Te doy mis ojos", in Spanish with French and German subtitles, at 17, place du Théâtre), followed by a discussion with representatives from the association "Femmes en Détresse" (Andrée Birnbaum).
