Meet the 2022 Earthshot Prize finalists

The Earthshot Prize is the most prestigious global environment prize in history, designed to incentivise change and help repair our planet over the next decade.

On 4 Nov, HRH Prince William and The Earthshot Prize unveiled this year’s incredible cohort of finalists – a group of extraordinary innovators and leaders from around the world. They each represent an extraordinary solution to one of greatest environmental challenges we face on Earth today: protecting and restoring nature, cleaning the air, reviving the oceans, building a waste free world, and fixing our climate.

While each finalist will receive support to scale their work, only five will go on to win The Earthshot Prize and £1 million, announced during an Awards Ceremony on 2 December in Boston.

Over the coming weeks, The Earthshot Prize will be shining a light on the finalists through a 5-part video series on YouTube produced by Studio Silverback in partnership with Little Dot Studios. Our team worked with remote crews on 5 continents to bring the finalist’s incredible stories to a worldwide stage.

Head to to watch now.
