It aims to discover, celebrate and scale innovative solutions to the greatest environmental challenges facing our planet. The Prize is centered on five Earthshots - Protect and Restore Nature; Clean our Air; Revive our Oceans; Build a Waste-free World; and Fix our Climate - unifying, ambitious goals for our planet which, if achieved by 2030, will improve life for us all.

Featuring Prince William, Sir David Attenborough as well as additional Members of The Earthshot Prize Council, the five-part series THE EARTHSHOT PRIZE: REPAIRING OUR PLANET showcases the five Earthshot challenges facing the planet as well as highlighting the work of the remarkable 15 Prize Finalists and their ground-breaking solutions to our greatest environmental challenges.

Inspired by this, The Earthshot Prize aims to mobilise collective action around our unique ability to innovate, problem solve and repair our planet.

"I am honoured to introduce the 15 innovators, leaders, and visionaries who are the first ever Finalists for The Earthshot Prize. They are working with the urgency required in this decisive decade for life on Earth and will inspire all of us with their optimism in our ability to rise to the greatest challenges in human history."
