The Earthshots Explained

Our challenge to the world is based on 5 ‘Earthshots’ – simple but ambitious and universal goals for 2030 that, if achieved, will repair the planet before irreversible damage occurs.

Five Ambitious
for 2030

Developed in collaboration with leading environmental experts, they are Protect and Restore Nature; Clean our Air; Revive our Oceans; Build a Waste-Free World; and Fix our Climate.

We search the world for environmental solutions that show the greatest potential to scale to achieve our five Earthshots.

Every year this decade, Prince William and a distinguished Prize Council will award £1 million Earthshot Prizes to five winners, one  per Earthshot.
