About The Earthshot Prize

Incubated within The Royal Foundation of the Prince and Princess of Wales and launched by Prince William in 2020, The Earthshot Prize searches for extraordinary solutions to the world’s greatest environmental challenges.

In July 2022, The Earthshot Prize was formally established as an independent charity to continue to deliver global change.

Urgency + Optimism = Action

Each year over the course of this critical decade, five Winners with the best chance of helping to achieve our Earthshots will receive £1M each while all fifteen Finalists will benefit from tailored support to help scale their ground-breaking solutions.
