Carbon in the atmosphere is making our planet warmer, to levels which threaten all life on Earth.
But it is not too late; if we act now, we can make the world a better, more sustainable home for everyone.
We choose a world where the levels of damaging greenhouse gases released into the atmosphere is falling, not rising, every year, where all countries commit to carbon-neutral economies and where the most vulnerable communities are properly protected from climate driven disasters.
We will award The Earthshot Prize to the most outstanding efforts to meet this challenge.
To the cities, countries and companies who reach their net-zero emissions; to the leaders who create millions of new jobs in a carbon neutral economy; to the technologists who remove carbon from the atmosphere on a global scale, whilst protecting human life and nature.
We choose to fix our climate so that life everywhere can thrive for generations to come.
