Outrage and Optimism / 75. Optimism and Earthshots with Prince William

Listen on

Episode notes

This week on Outrage + Optimism, Prince William is here!

 

With just under 10 years to cut global emissions by 50%, the future of our planet depends on a raising of ambition we have not seen since JFK’s Moonshot. A conservationist at heart and in practice, Prince William is on the hunt to find and finance the solutions that will get us there.

 

Enter The Earthshot Prize - Five, one million-pound prizes awarded each year for the next 10 years, providing at least 50 solutions to the world’s greatest environmental problems by 2030.

 

The categories for the prizes are as follows: Protect and Restore Nature, Clean Our Air, Revive Our Oceans, Build A Waste-Free World, and Fix Our Climate – simple yet ambitious goals, underpinned by scientifically agreed targets, which if achieved by 2030 will improve life for us all, for generations to come.

 

Our hosts Christiana Figueres, Tom Rivett-Carnac, and Paul Dickinson sit down with The Duke of Cambridge to find out why he is doing this now, and how optimistic he is that we can solve the climate crisis.

 

Plus, stick around for an incredible musical performance from AURORA and Aaron Taylor!
