Prince William

The Duke of Cambridge

Protecting the natural environment for future generations is one of Prince William's key priorities. In October 2020, Prince William and The Royal Foundation launched The Earthshot Prize – the most prestigious global prize for the environment in history. As well as identifying evidence-based solutions to the biggest environmental problems the planet faces, The Earthshot Prize aims to turn the current pessimism surrounding environmental issues into optimism that we can rise to the biggest challenges of our time. The Prize is about much more than awarding achievement – it is a decade of action to convene the environmental world with funders, businesses and individuals to maximise impact and take solutions to scale, to celebrate the people and places driving change; and to inspire people all over the world to work together to repair the planet.
