AKDN, Prince William launch environmental prize

12 October 2020

On 8 October, a $64.54 million prize focused on the environment was launched by Prince William in partnership with AKDN. The prize aims to find new solutions to environmental crises and the improvement of living stan­dards, particularly for communities that are most at risk from climate change. The five Earthshots unveiled are: protect and restore nature; clean our air; revive our oceans; build a waste-free world; and fix our climate. Every year from 2021 until 2030, Prince William, alongside the Earthshot Prize Council, which covers six continents, will award the Earthshot Prize to five winners, one per Earthshot.
