Prince William revealed The Earthshot Prize, a prestigious prize that provides an incentive for scientists, activists, economists, and community projects to tackle environment-related issues. 

The £1 million prize will be awarded to five winners each year from 2021 to 2030 to provide 50 solutions to environmental issues by 2030.

The five challenges that The Earshot Prize wants to tackle are, “protect and restore nature, clean our air, revive our oceans, build a waste-free world, and fix our climate.” 

The Royal Foundation of The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge is running the prize until the end of 2021 where it will then become its own entity.
