International Women’s Day 2015 focuses on the Beijing Declaration and Platform for Action, a historical roadmap signed by 189 governments 20 years ago and which established the agenda for women’s empowerment. Although there have been many successes since then, numerous wide gaps still exist. This year’s motto therefore wants to reflect the call of the UN Women’s Beijing + 20 Campaign: “Empower Women, Empower Humanity: Picture it!” With this action, the United Nations wants to mobilize the maximum number of people worldwide in favour of gender equality.
This initiative exemplifies the Agbar Tower’s commitment to the city of Barcelona and initiatives of social awareness, and continues with the calendar of special lighting foreseen for this year which will coincide with several significant dates. The next one will be for World Water Day, on 22 March.
