And I think that urgency with optimism really creates action.

The Earthshot Prize is William's biggest project to date

Nominations for the prize open on 1 November with an annual global awards ceremony to be held in a different city each year. The first Earthshot Prizes will be presented in London in autumn 2021 over several days, with the aim of celebrating the first 15 finalists like "returning astronauts" in a bid to boost optimism in our ability to repair the planet.

Led by Director Amy Pickerill, the Duchess of Sussex's former Assistant Private Secretary, the Earthshot Prize is launching in partnership with the Royal Foundation, but will become fully independent next year.

A first draft has already been completed and looks set not to follow the direct-to-DVD sequel to the animated original The Lion King II: Simba's Pride. Instead, the story will continue the evolution of the characters from the first movie, while also looking back at Mufasa’s origin story.

Celebrities, including Katy Perry Stephen Fry, Alesha Dixon and Prince William have come together to spearhead the Celebrities come together for #MentalHealthMinute campaign to encourage people to talk about mental health.

And as more and more of us move to different countries across the world, there are even more stories to tell… William : …And lessons to be learned. Well, we're not going to practice now William so you'll have to wait until the end of the programme and then I'll tell you whether you're right or wrong!

Among the Global Alliance Founding Partners backing the project are the Aga Khan Development Network, the Jack Ma Foundation, which was set up by the founder of China's online retail giant Alibaba, and the The Paul G. Allen Family Foundation, created by Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen, who died in 2018. Organisations lending their expertise with the nomination process include WWF, Greenpeace, The Green Belt Movement and Conservation International.

As well as showcasing inspiring new solutions to the world's problems, the Earthshot Prize also aims to raise optimism about humanity's ability to solve big challenges – something that will be measured annually with an Ipsos Mori poll. The BBC will also screen a five-part series about the project ahead of the first awards ceremony.

The launch comes after two years of work

Billed as the most prestigious environmental prize in history, this is William's biggest project to date and one that will define the next decade of his career. The seeds of the idea were sown during a visit to Namibia, Tanzania and Kenya in autumn 2018, when he met frontline conservation workers and was inspired by their ability to solve the challenges they were facing.

William discussed the idea in December of that year with Sir David Attenborough and others including the Prince of Wales, who has campaigned on the environment since the 1970s.

A source close to the project said: "This is an issue with a long family tradition and that’s something that has given us real power in putting this prize together. Generations of work have come before this."

Others believe the Earthshot Prize comes at a time when William has grown in confidence and in stature on the world stage, with another source adding: "He's not naturally the boldest individual in asserting himself, but what he has clearly realised over the last year because of the people he has spoken to is that he has a global leadership role to play and now is the time to play it.

"It's going to be a huge focus of his work in future."
