Earthshot Prize

The Earthshot Prize is an ambitious and prestigious effort organized by the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge to incentivize change and help repair our planet over the next ten years. Taking inspiration from President John F. Kennedy’s Moonshot, which united millions of people around an organising goal to put man on the moon, and catalyzed the development of new technology in the 1960s, The Earthshot Prize is centered around five ‘Earthshots’ – simple but ambitious goals for our planet which, if achieved by 2030, will improve life for us all, for generations to come.

Five, one million-pound prizes will be awarded each year for the next ten years, providing at least 50 solutions to the world’s greatest environmental problems by 2030. The Royal Highnesses hope to convene the environmental world with funders, businesses and individuals to maximise impact and take solutions to scale, to celebrate the people and places driving change; and to inspire people all over the world to work together to repair the planet.

The Earthshot Prize is being sponsored by The Royal Foundation of The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge but is planned to become its own entity by the end of 2021. Go to “Earthshot Prize” to learn more.
