The Earthshot Prize announced the 15 Finalists for this year’s Prize at the second Earthshot Innovation Summit, an event held alongside the UN General Assembly in partnership with Bloomberg to celebrate and champion innovators working to solve the world’s most challenges.
The Finalists will benefit from invaluable mentorship, resources, and technical support through The Earthshot Prize Fellowship Programme. This program will also give them access to a robust network of influential businesses, investors, and climate experts.
The Earthshot Prize revolves around five transformative ‘Earthshots,’ each embodying simple yet ambitious goals representing the world we aspire to build for future generations.
Keabetswe Modimoeng, Group Executive at MultiChoice Group, said, “We are immensely proud to see African innovation shining on the global stage through the Earthshot Prize. At MultiChoice, as a proudly African organization, we believe in the power of homegrown solutions to address the world’s most pressing challenges. These African finalists exemplify that spirit, and we salute their remarkable efforts in safeguarding our planet for future generations.”
By participating in this prestigious prize, African innovators gain a platform to showcase their solutions, inspire corporate entities to join the fight against climate change and urge governments to prioritize climate action on their national agendas.
All Finalists will receive tailored support and resources from The Earthshot Prize Global Alliance Members, an unprecedented network of private sector businesses worldwide dedicated to scaling innovative climate and environmental solutions to maximize their impact.
The Earthshot Prize Council will carefully select the five winners, a diverse team of influential individuals committed to leveraging their platforms to champion inspiring leadership and elevate urgent efforts to restore and regenerate our planet.
The Earthshot Prize is a truly global initiative, bringing together a diverse coalition of nominators from over 200 individuals and organizations worldwide. It encompasses a distinguished Expert Advisory Panel and The Earthshot Prize Council, comprising influential figures who wholeheartedly support positive environmental action.
