The Earthshot Prize Awards

Boston 2022


In 1962, the ‘Moonshot’ was a challenge set by President John F. Kennedy to reach the seemingly impossible goal of landing a man on the moon within ten years.

Inspired by this stunning achievement, Prince William established The Earthshot Prize to uncover and scale the innovative solutions that will repair our planet within the next ten years.

We are therefore thrilled to be partnering with the John F. Kennedy Foundation to bring The Earthshot Prize to Boston, the birthplace of President Kennedy himself, to celebrate not only our 2022 Winners and Finalists but also the city’s own ongoing transformation towards sustainability.

Celebrating Boston

In the run-up to the Ceremony, we will be working hand-in-hand with our Host Committee Members to showcase the incredible scientific and technological developments taking place in Boston​. There will also be a packed programme of activities across the capital, generating memorable moments that all Bostonians will be proud of for years to come.

Stay across everything that’s happening on social media using the hashtag #EarthshotBoston2022.
