RCSI Bahrain goes green to celebrate St Patrick’s Day


For the first time since the launch of the Global Greening Initiative, RCSI Bahrain took part in the campaign by lighting the campus green for three days, from St Patrick's Day, March 17 until March 20.
Global Greening is an annual initiative by Tourism Ireland to promote overseas tourism, in which major landmarks and iconic sites around the world are illuminated green for St Patrick's Day.

Some of the sites which have gone green in previous years are Niagara Falls (on both the US and Canadian sides), the London Eye, the Leaning Tower of Pisa, Burj Al Arab in Dubai, the Christ the Redeemer statue in Rio de Janeiro, and the Sleeping Beauty Castle at Disneyland, Paris. For the first time in Bahrain, the University joined the list of iconic landmarks as it too underwent ‘a greening' for St Patrick's Day.
