Join GIMED on March 28 to celebrate the Earth Hour and raise your voice for the planet

Earth Hour

The need to unite and protect our planet has never been greater. On March 28th, the GIMED project joins the Earth Hour initiative to place a spotlight on nature and actions to protect it.

Started by WWF and partners as a symbolic lights-out event in Sydney in 2007, Earth Hour is now one of the world's largest grassroots movements for the environment. Held every year on the last Saturday of March, Earth Hour engages millions of people in more than 180 countries and territories, switching off their lights to show support for our planet.

But Earth Hour goes far beyond the symbolic action of switching off - it has become a catalyst for positive environmental impact, driving major legislative changes by harnessing the power of the people and collective action.

The development of a green economy in the Mediterranean area is urgently needed to combat environmental degradation. Strengthening eco-innovative entrepreneurship is a recognized solution to enable a sustainable transition. The GIMED project is on a mission to boost the development of eco-innovative ventures in order to create employment and drive the green and circular economy in the Mediterranean.
