23 March 2024 marks a crucial milestone for the global environmental movement: Earth Hour. 

This event, which brings together more than 190 countries and millions of individuals committed to the health of our planet. It is much more than a symbolic gesture. It is a reminder of our collective responsibility to tackle climate change and protect our planet's biodiversity. 

17 years ago in Sydney, Australia, Earth Hour was born as an initiative to turn off the lights for 60 minutes. Since then, it has evolved into the world's largest global movement to raise awareness of climate change and biodiversity loss. But this year, more than ever, the importance of our commitment is palpable. 

The latest report of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) underlines the urgency of keeping the global temperature increase below 1.5°C.

Unfortunately, we have already exceeded 1.1°C above pre-industrial levels. As a result, we are heading towards a potential increase of 1.5°C by 2030 if we do not take significant action immediately. 

The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) set by the 2030 Agenda are our compass on this journey towards sustainability. Earth Hour is a concrete way to promote these goals, in line with the global agreement established at the 15th United Nations conference on biodiversity. 

But what are we looking for with this one-hour blackout? Beyond the symbolic gesture, Earth Hour promotes direct action against climate change and encourages sustainable lifestyles that respect our ecosystems. We know that turning off the lights for one hour will not stop climate change, but it does aim to raise awareness about more responsible behaviour towards our environment. 

So, since IberianaWe encourage you to participate in this event to build a better future together. Join millions of people around the world on 23 March 2024, from 20:30 to 21:30, by switching off the lights and reflecting on our role in protecting our planet. 

Together, we can make a difference - move for the planet!
