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 were therefore thrilled to partner 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.
The 2022 Earthshot Prize Awards took place on Friday, December 2nd at the MGM Music Hall in Boston, see some of the best moments below.
