How The Earthshot Prize works

We use a fair and rigorous process to search, select, accelerate, award and scale the best and most ingenious solutions to repair and regenerate our planet, while simultaneously nurturing eco-innovators and their impact.


We scour the globe for the breakthrough solutions that can solve the biggest environmental challenges.


Our selection priorities and our Prize Council help us identify the solutions that will have the most significant impact on our areas of focus.


Beyond the Prize, we exist to help Finalists scale their Earthshot solutions through a specifically designed programme.


For the next decade, five solutions will be awarded £1million and become one of only 50 winners of The Earthshot Prize.


We believe that our Earthshot solutions can have the greatest impact when they are met with best support. We help them meet the funders, businesses and individuals who can help them grow.
