Earth ‘at tipping point’ says William as he launches world environmental prize

The Duke of Cambridge is hoping to summon the spirit of the lunar landings to help “repair the Earth”, after launching a global environmental challenge to address climate change and other ecological concerns.

The wildlife campaigner and father-of-three has set up The Earthshot Prize after consulting members of his family as well as veteran broadcaster and naturalist Sir David Attenborough in an attempt to provide solutions “to the world’s greatest problems”.

Kensington Palace said multimillion-pound prizes will be awarded annually to five winners around the world, in each year of the 2020s.
