For the next eight years, The Earthshot Prize will launch a global search for groundbreaking solutions to five Earthshot goals – Protect and Restore Nature, Clean Our Air, Revive Our Oceans, Build a Waste-Free World and Fix Our Climate.
The Earthshot Prize was launched in 2021 with three African organizations selected as finalists – Sanergy (from Kenya), Reeddi Capsules (from Nigeria), and Pole Pole Foundation (from the Democratic Republic of Congo).
