Prince William is launching what's being called the most prestigious environmental program in history. It's called Earthshot and it runs for the 2020's decade. The purpose is to focus and reward doable remedies to address Climate Change. Prince William is putting significant money, what Kensington Palace is calling "multi-million pounds" behind the Earthshot Prize Challenge.
Awarding Climate Change Innovation
Prince William's Earthshot program is betting on human innovation to turnaround the massive environmental damage that Climate Change has caused globally to the planet. Starting in 2021, 5 CC remedies will win substantial monetary prizes. The Prince hopes that by 2030 those yearly five prizes will yield 50 new Climate Change solutions.
The Prince likens his program to other historic human missions like putting a man on the moon. In fact, the prize was inspired by "moonshot", a term used to describe incredibly difficult and game-changing projects like the 1969 Moon landing. The Prince is very practical and strategic about the difficulty and the necessity of achieving goals to save the planet by finding remedies to stop the progress of Climate Change.
2020's: Decade to Heal the Environment from Climate Change
The Prince calls the 2020's a decade of change needed to change the Earth. His cutting-edge program is designed to reward solutions on cutting global emissions, reducing ocean, air and land pollution and supporting biodiversity during the 2020's decade. What a great idea! It's the kind of challenge humanity has aspired to and succeeded at. These are solutions the world needs.
