Earthshot Prize

The Centre for Global Eco-Innovation is delighted to have been selected as one of 100 world-wide Nominators for the prestigious Earthshot Prize.

Led by Prince William and Sir David Attenborough, the Earthshot Prize is designed to incentivise change and help repair the plant over the next 10 years. Each year five winners will be awarded £1,000,000 to support their work.

The Earthshot prize is a new global prize for the environment, awarding achievement and action across five competition categories:

  1. Protect and restore nature
  2. Clean our air
  3. Revive our oceans
  4. Build a waste-free world
  5. Fix our climate

Together, they form a unique set of challenges rooted in science, which aim to generate new ways of thinking, as well as new technologies, systems, policies and solutions. By bringing these five critical issues together, the Earthshot Prize recognises the interconnectivity between environmental challenges and the urgent need to tackle them together.

Prizes could be awarded to a wide range of individuals, teams or collaborations – scientists, activists, economists, community projects, leaders, governments, banks, businesses, cities, and countries – anyone whose workable solutions make a substantial contribution to achieving the Earthshots.
