On Saturday, March 23, from 8:30 pm to 9:00 pm, the citizens of 200 countries are invited to join in with Earth Hour, an initiative that proposes that, for sixty minutes, millions of people at the same time turn off the lights in our homes, businesses, offices, buildings and monuments to draw attention to the problem of climate change and the need to safeguard our planet and, in this way, take care of our own health and well-being.

Foundation MAPFRE will once again be joining forces with Earth Hour 2024, the largest global movement to fight climate change, by turning off the lights at our offices in Madrid and Barcelona.

The importance of this simple gesture is not negligible. According to the Global Resource Outlook 2024 study published a few days ago by UNEP (United Nations Environment Programme), the world is immersed in a triple planetary crisis of climate change, biodiversity loss and pollution and waste. The global economy is consuming more and more natural resources, while the world is not on track to meet the Sustainable Development Goals.

United in this symbolic initiative we can highlight and raise awareness of the need to act in the face of the devastating threat of climate change to people and the planet.

Since its first edition in Australia in 2007 (2009 in Spain), this campaign has become one of the largest environmental movements in the world. We are ready for Earth Hour. What about you?

On March 23 we will turn off the lights!
