Today we have seen the launch of the new Earthshot Prize by Prince William and Sir David Attenborough.

“The Earth is at a tipping point and we face a stark choice: either we continue as we are and irreparably damage our planet, or we remember our unique power as human beings and our continual ability to lead, innovate and problem-solve. People can achieve great things. The next ten years present us with one of our greatest tests – a decade of action to repair the Earth.”

Prince William

Working in collaboration with Sir David Attenborough this prize has been set up by Prince William to create an opportunity to make a real difference for our future

This initiative comes on the back of Attenborough’s recent programmes on the loss of biodiversity across the whole planet.
