BVRio helps with search for 2022 Earthshot Prize winners

Between now and 4 March 2022 BVRio is in the privileged position to be able to submit nominations for The Earthshot Prize 2022. Along with the other Official Nominators, we are looking for exceptional initiatives which aim to address one of five critical issues facing the planet.

You can get involved by bringing to our attention any initiatives which you feel we should consider by emailing details to info@bvrio.org. Five, one million-pound prizes will be awarded each year for the next ten years, providing at least 50 solutions to the world’s greatest environmental problems by 2030.

“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

The Earthshot Prize is about much more than awarding achievement – it is a decade of action to convene the environmental world with funders, businesses and individuals to maximise impact and take solutions to scale, to celebrate the people and places driving change; and to inspire people all over the world to work together to repair the planet.

The Earthshot Prize is centred around five ‘Earthshots’ – simple but ambitious goals for our planet which if achieved by 2030 will improve life for us all, for generations to come. Each Earthshot is underpinned by scientifically agreed targets including the UN Sustainable Development Goals and other internationally recognised measures to help repair our planet.

Together, they form a unique set of challenges rooted in science, which aim to generate new ways of thinking, as well as new technologies, systems, policies and solutions. By bringing these five critical issues together, The Earthshot Prize recognises the interconnectivity between environmental challenges and the urgent need to tackle them together.

BVRio Chairman and founder, Pedro Moura Costa, commented, “We are honoured to have been selected again in 2022 for our ability to identify the most impactful solutions individuals, communities, businesses and organisations are making towards achieving the five Earthshots.”

The nomination period runs 4 January to 4 March 2022.
