Taking place ahead of the inaugural Earthshot Prize awards on Sunday, the event aims to encourage the children to “think big, bold ideas to restore the planet and spark an enduring enthusiasm for the natural world.”
Recent findings from The Children’s Commissioner’s Big Ask show that young people are concerned about the future of the planet, with 39 per cent of children in the UK seeing the environment as one of their top concerns about the future.
Generation Earthshot informs that interest and encourages students and their educators around the world to generate ideas to solve the world’s greatest environmental challenges.
It aims to unlock the potential of the next generation of inventors, innovators and leaders who will inherit our world and inspire them with the enthusiasm to develop new solutions and protect our planet.
The first-ever Earthshot Prize awards will be presented Sunday evening at London’s iconic Alexandra Palace.
Broadcast to a global audience via the BBC and Discovery+, the award ceremony celebrates the 15 incredible Finalists from around the world before the first five Earthshot award winners are announced.
These five solutions will have the potential to respond to the biggest environmental challenges facing our planet and will receive £1 million each to help them scale.
The first finalists of the award include a 14-year-old inventor from India working to improve air quality across India, a small water treatment plant from Japan that turns 98 percent of wastewater into clean water, and the country of Costa Rica for a groundbreaking plan to restore the rainforest.
It comes just weeks before the UK hosts COP26 in Glasgow from October 31 to November 12. The climate talks will bring together heads of state, climate experts and campaigners to achieve coordinated action to tackle climate change. These actions include increasing the emphasis on climate and environmental education in school curricula around the world.
