The Prize is centered around five ‘Earthshots,’: simple but aspirational goals to ensure our communities, oceans, and ecosystems can thrive together in harmony for generations to come:

1) Protect & Restore Nature
2) Clean Our Air
3) Revive Our Oceans
4) Build A Waste-free World, and
5) Fix Our Climate.

Fifteen Earthshot finalists were selected during The Earthshot Prize Innovation Summit in New York City which began the countdown to The Earthshot Prize’s third annual Awards ceremony to be filmed in Singapore, where, on Nov. 7, five of the 15 Finalists were awarded a catalytic $1.2 million to scale their cutting-edge solutions. The 15 innovators honored as Earthshot Finalists represent six continents and were chosen from more than 1,100 nominees.

The partnership will also celebrate the work of The Earthshot Prize finalists and winners by creating and sharing stories of their important work across all PBS platforms.

About The Earthshot Prize
Founded by Prince William and incubated in The Royal Foundation in 2020 for a year before becoming an independent platform/organization, The Earthshot Prize is a global environmental prize and platform designed to discover, accelerate and scale ground-breaking solutions to repair and regenerate the planet. Inspired by President John F. Kennedy’s Moonshot, which united millions of people around the goal of reaching the moon, The Earthshot Prize aims to catalyze an Earthshot challenge to urgently encourage and scale innovative solutions that can help put the world firmly on a trajectory towards a stable climate, where communities, oceans and biodiversity thrive in harmony by 2030.

The five challenges are: Protect and Restore Nature; Clean Our Air; Revive Our Oceans; Build a Waste-Free World; and Fix Our Climate.

The Prize aims to turn the current pessimism surrounding environmental issues into optimism by championing inspiring leadership and helping to scale incredible cutting-edge solutions. It will discover 50 winners over 10 years with the power to repair the planet. More than an award, The Earthshot Prize works in partnership with a Global Alliance of Partners to support the scaling of the solutions discovered and selected each year.
