Prince William is to launch a set of scientific challenges to inspire a ‘decade of action to repair the planet’.

Inspired by John F Kennedy’s ‘moonshot’ of the 1960s, which induced the invention of new technologies such as MRI scanners, the challenge will be known as the Earthshot Prize and hopes to encourage a new collective effort in saving our planet between 2020 and 2030. The prizes will be available to reward 5-10 winners each year from all industries and walks of life who are making progress towards solving global issues.
