Every year, on the last Saturday of March, supporters in over 190 countries and territories unite virtually at 8.30 pm to take action and raise awareness of the issues facing our one home.
But, Earth Hour is more than just an hour for Earth – it’s a movement for our own futures, for the benefit of people and the planet – not just a symbol of solidarity, but a catalyst for change, harnessing the power of the crowd.

Since 2013, Earth Hour concerts have marked the initiation of Jamaica’s participation in the global movement. Support has exceeded 5,000 physical patrons, all enjoying an evening packed with the natural mystic, live acoustic music, and informative bits about the greater cause.
The environmental-focused concert has been anchored with performances by Chronixx, Kelissa, Jesse Royal, Kabaka Pyramid and return host Terri-Karelle.
This year, the concert will feature acts like King X, Blvk H3ro, Sevana, Christopher Ellis and Agent Sasco.
Colleen Dawkins, the recipient of the 2021 Prime Minister’s Youth Award for the Environment Protection, will also host interviews backstage.
This year the acoustic show was prerecorded at the historic 56 Hope Road, former residence of Bob Marley, which currently houses a museum in his honour, which means viewers can stream on Tu Gong radio and Youtube.
