The Earthshot Prize is “the most ambitious and prestigious” environment award in history and “designed to incentivise change and help to repair our planet over the next ten years.”


Headed up by Prince William, the Prize is centred around five simple but ambitious goals for our planet, which “if achieved by 2030, will improve life for us all, for generations to come.”
