PRINCE WILLIAM LAUNCHES PRIZE To solve Earth’s top environmental challenges

0

Britain’s Prince William launched a multi-million-pound prize to encourage the world’s greatest problem-solvers to find answers to Earth’s biggest environmental problems, saying the planet was now at a tipping point.

The Earthshot Prize, described in its publicity as the “most prestigious environmental prize in history”, will be awarded to five winners a year over the next decade with the aim of producing at least 50 solutions to the world’s most pressing challenges.

A film to coincide with Tuesday’s launch was narrated by veteran British broadcaster and naturalist David Attenborough, who has been making nature programmes such as the popular Blue Planet series since the 1950s
