BVRio is on the search for The Earthshot Prize winners
We are proud to announce that BVRio has been invited to be an Official Nominator for The Earshot Prize, and we are on the search for the winners.
The Earthshot Prize
Described as “the most ambitious and prestigious of its kind”, The Earthshot Prize was launched at the end of 2020 with the aim of discovering new solutions to the world’s biggest environmental issues.
As Prince William, who founded the prize as part of The Royal Foundation of The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, explained:
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.
The Earthshot Prize is based around five ambitious ‘Earthshots’ that will help to:
- Protect and restore nature
- Clean our air
- Revive our oceans
- Build a waste-free world
- Fix our climate
Each year, between 2021 and 2030, five projects – one for each Earthshot category – will be awarded a one-million-pound prize and a global platform to highlight their work with the aim that their solutions lead to global adoption, reproduction and scaling.
The search has begun!
As an Official Nominator, we are one of over 100 organisations from across the world who have been requested to submit nominations across all five Earthshots.
We’re honoured to have been selected for our ability to identify the most impactful solutions across all sectors, from grassroots to businesses.
We will be nominating individuals, communities, businesses and organisations whose solutions make the most progress towards achieving the five Earthshots.
If you have any suggestions for solutions we should nominate, please let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org. The closing date for entries is Monday, 25 January 2021.
