Prince William announces finalists for The Earthshot Prize 2022

Following his father Charles III “the green” King of the United Kingdom, Prince William also cares about the future of our planet. In 2020 the Prince together with The Royal Foundation launched The Earthshot Prize. Today Prince William announces the finalists for the 2022 Earthshot Prize. On December 2, five winners will receive £ 1 million prizes in a ceremony hosted in Boston.
The Prize is invoked in the spirit of President John F. Kennedy. In the 60’s Kennedy’s ‘Moonshot’ united the American people around the goal of reaching the moon. This inspired Prince William to mobilize a wave of innovation and technology to be more optimistic about the future of our planet ánd to take serious action in this critical decade. According to scientifically agreed goals and targets, e.g. the UN Sustainable Development Goals, the prize is divided into 5 categories.
Finalists and the later winners of the prize are selected in a 5-stage procedure. Over 1,000 solutions to the 5 earthshots were submitted in early 2022. Afterward, the nominations were screened and shortlisted and assessed by a global Expert Advisory Panel that lists the 15 finalists. This panel consists of experts in science, conservation innovation, investment, economics, politics, communications and activism.
The final stage is deciding on the winners in the 5 different categories. The 5 winners will be selected by The Earthshot Prize Council, a diverse team of influential individuals committed to using their platforms to champion inspiring leadership and elevate urgent efforts to repair and regenerate the planet. Among the members are Prince William, Christiana Figueres (chair), Sir David Attenborough, Queen Rania Al Abdullah from Jordan and famous singer Shakira.
The Earthshot Prize aims to catalyse an Earthshot challenge to urgently encourage and scale innovative solutions that can help put the world firmly on a trajectory toward a stable climate, where communities, oceans, and biodiversity thrive in harmony by 2030. The 5 winning projects will each receive £ 1 million. On top of that, all the finalists will receive tailored support and resources from The Earthshot Prize Global Alliance Members, an unprecedented network of private sector businesses around the world committed to helping scale innovative climate and environmental solutions and multiplying their impact.

        Giving people incentives is a great way to positively motivate the crowd towards the right direction. Having the Prince participate in protecting nature is the icing of the cake.
