An announcement from Kensington Palace on 15 May explained: ‘Prince William’s Earthshot Prize, an ambitious global initiative to protect and restore our planet, will travel to Singapore later this year for its third annual Awards Ceremony, which will take place on Tuesday 7 November.

During the inspiring event in the heart of Singapore, the five Winners of The Earthshot Prize 2023 will be awarded a catalytic £1 million to help scale their environmental solutions. The ceremony will also feature performances by world-renowned musicians and artists.

‘The Earthshot Prize is all about showing the world that solutions to some of the biggest environmental challenges we face are out there. After two years of discovering impactful ideas and innovations, I am delighted that The Earthshot Prize is travelling to Singapore, where the ground-breaking solutions of our 2023 Finalists will be celebrated.’

Inspired by President Kennedy, The Earthshot Prize was set up by Prince William in 2020 ‘to discover, celebrate, accelerate and scale solutions that can help put the world firmly on a trajectory towards a stable climate, where communities, oceans and biodiversity thrive in harmony by 2030.’ It centres around five key goals, or ‘Earthshots’: Protect and Restore Nature; Clean Our Air; Revive Our Oceans; Build a Waste Free World and Fix Our Climate.

On the choice of Singapore for this year’s awards ceremony, Kensington Palace explained: ‘Southeast Asia is one of the regions of the world most affected by climate change, but in the face of significant environmental challenges, it is also a hub for innovators, entrepreneurs, community leaders and problem solvers who are committed to restoring our planet. This optimistic approach embodies the spirit of The Earthshot Prize, and, as the gateway to Southeast Asia, Singapore provides the perfect venue for the 2023 Winners to be announced.’

The awards ceremony in Singapore follows on from events hosted in Boston in 2022 and London in 2021.

The Earthshot Prize Finalists celebrated at those first two annual events have already driven significant change around the world, supported by partners from across The Earthshot Prize’s Global Alliance. Their stories demonstrate that the seemingly impossible can be possible through ingenuity, optimism, inspiration and innovation.

The 2023 Earthshot Prize Finalists will be unveiled this autumn. More details about The Earthshot Prize Awards Ceremony and Earthshot Week in Singapore will be released in due course.
