Prize to save the planet

The Earthshot Prize will award five awards worth C$1.7 million each year for the next ten years, from 2021 to 2030, within the same categories of protecting and restoring nature, clean air, ocean revival, waste reduction and climate change.

“Earth is at a tipping point and we face a stark choice: Either we go on as we are and irreparably damage our aircraft, or we remember our unique strength as human beings and our continued ability to lead, innovate and solve problems.” The Duke of Cambridge said when he announced the award in 2019.

William has recruited dozens of international celebrities to join the Earthshot Prize Board to determine the winners.

They include Brazilian footballer Alves and Chinese entrepreneur Ma, Queen Rania of Jordan, Australian actress Cate Blanchett, Colombian singer Shakira and former UN climate official Christiana Figueres.

“By 2030, we really hope we have made great strides in fixing some of the biggest problems the Earth is facing,” William said when announcing the award.

“I think urgency with optimism creates action. And so the Earthshot Prize is really about harnessing that optimism and that urgency to find solutions to some of the world’s biggest environmental problems.”

The award is supported by many international organizations, including the World Wide Fund for Nature, the United Nations Environment Program (UNEP), the World Economic Forum, the National Geographic Society, and Greenpeace.

The first prize winners will be announced on October 17, 2021.
