Earth Hour in the Mediterranean

By taking part in Earth Hour, the Mediterranean Action Plan of the UN Environment Programme (UNEP/MAP) contributed to raising public awareness about the need to alleviate pressure on Mediterranean marine and coastal ecosystems, including from the impacts of climate change.
