Prince William Calls on Young People to Fight Climate Change

Prince William has urged young people around the world to help repair the planet. Speaking at the inaugural Earthshot Prize, which he founded in 2018, the Duke of Cambridge closed a glittering ceremony in London with a passionate speech.

“I want to say something to the young watching tonight,” he said onstage at Alexandra Palace. “For too long, we haven’t done enough to protect the planet for your future, the Earthshot is for you. In the next 10 years, we are going to act. We are going to find solutions to repair our planet. Please keep learning, keep demanding change, and don’t give up hope. We will rise to these challenges.”

The ceremony for the annual environmental prize saw five winners awarded £1 million ($1.37 million) each to fund their efforts to repair the planet.

Coral farmers from the Bahamas were awarded a prize for their revolutionary project to restore coral reefs, which involves growing coral on land then replanting it in the ocean, a process which is 50 times faster than traditional methods and, adds an Earthshot statement, “improves coral resilience to the impact of climate change.”
