As an official nominator, Fauna & Flora International (FFI) is part of a network of organisations responsible for identifying the most impactful solutions across all sectors – from grassroots to businesses – and nominating these for consideration.
The Earthshot Prize looks for solutions that will make tangible progress towards one of the five Earthshots (see below). They should be beyond idea stage, have tested their solution in the field or with target audiences, and be poised to scale up their impact within the next five years.
If you have a solution that is inspiring, inclusive and impactful, please get in touch with [email protected] for a further discussion. Read on to learn more about The Earthshot Prize, or visit www.earthshotprize.org.
The Earthshot Prize was launched in 2020 by Prince William and is designed to unearth creative solutions to our planetary crises.
Taking inspiration from John F. Kennedy’s Moonshot, which in 1961 united people around the goal of putting a man on the moon within a decade, The Earthshot Prize is centred around five ‘Earthshots’, each a simple but ambitious goal for our planet to be achieved by 2030.
The Earthshots are:
They aim to generate new ways of thinking as well as new technologies, systems, policies and solutions.
Every year from 2021 until 2030, Prince William and The Earthshot Prize Council (whose first member is FFI vice-president Sir David Attenborough) will award The Earthshot Prize, worth £1 million, to five winners – one per Earthshot – whose solutions make the most progress towards these goals.
Prizes could be awarded to a wide range of individuals, teams or collaborations – scientists, activists, economists, community projects, leaders, governments, businesses, cities and countries – anyone whose workable solutions make a substantial contribution to achieving the Earthshots.
The £1 million in prize money will support environmental and conservation projects that are agreed with the winners. You can learn more about the 2021 Prize winners and finalists here.
