What is the Earthshot Prize?
The Earthshot Prize is an environmental award that was invented by the Duke of Cambridge. The Prince was inspired by former President John F. Kennedy’s 'Moonshot' which was a cause that united millions of people in the goal of putting a man on the moon.
The Earthshot prize is focused on five goals that are ambitious, but if achieved by 2030, will improve life for generations to come.
Those five goals are to; protect and restore nature, clean our air, revive our oceans, build a waste-free world, and fix our climate.
Every year for the next ten years, five people will be awarded a £1million prize. These prizes are given to those who have provided solutions to some of the world's greatest environmental problems.
The Earthshot Prize: Repairing Our Planet, debuted on BBC One at 6:05pm and is available to view on BBC iPlayer and Discovery Plus.
