Prince William’s Earthshot Prize Ceremony Encores in Primetime on November 22
The third annual ceremony of The Earthshot Prize premiered on Sunday, November 12, honoring this year’s winners and their innovative solutions. Founded by Prince William in 2020, the prestigious environmental award aims to discover and help scale efforts to protect and restore our planet.
So why are we telling you about a show that has already aired? This program – which is a recorded show version of the ceremony itself – tends to fly under the radar, but it’s awe-inspiring and we are encoring it Wednesday, November 22, at 8pm on CET and ThinkTV16. We wanted to make sure you knew!
The Earthshot Prize focuses on five universal goals for 2030: Protect and Restore Nature, Clean our Air, Revive our Oceans, Build a Waste-Free World, and Fix our Climate. Each year, a winner is awarded in each category with $1.2 million to scale their work and accelerate their positive impact on people, communities, and the planet. This year’s innovators selected as Earthshot Finalists represented six continents and were chosen from more than 1,100 nominees.
Host and Emmy-award winner Hannah Waddingham spotlighted the incredible stories of all 15 finalists, each of whom will receive mentorship, resources and technical support from The Earthshot Prize Fellowship Program and network. Acción Andina, GRST, WildAid Marine Program, S4S Technologies and Boomitra were announced as the 2023 Winners of The Earthshot Prize.
“As The Earthshot Prize continues to identify the most promising climate and environmental
solutions to repair our planet within the decade, I am amazed each year by the support of our
friends and partners around the world, including BBC, PBS, MultiChoice and the performers and
presenters who help us tell the stories of our Finalists,” said Hannah Jones, CEO, The Earthshot Prize, in a press release. “This global spotlight on our Finalists is critical to grow their impact on our climate and environment. We are thrilled to bring these hopeful stories to audiences around the world from Singapore, an exciting and inspiring global hub for both entertainment and sustainability.”
The star-studded awards ceremony, which was filmed on November 7 in Singapore, included Academy Award-winning actor and Earthshot Prize Council Member Cate Blanchett, actor Lana Condor, wildlife conservationist Robert Irwin, and actor and humanitarian Nomzamo Mbatha. Bastille and OneRepublic – among others – also performed at the ceremony.
