The Earthshot Prize is awarded to five winners each year for their contributions to environmentalism. It was first awarded in 2021 and is planned to run annually until 2030. Each winner receives a grant of £1 million to continue their environmental work.

Last night in Boston the winners of the second ever Earthshot prize were announced!

They include childhood friends who turn CO2 into rock, a pair in the UK who have made plastic out of seaweed, and a company that makes stoves that use more environmentally-friendly fuel to burn.

The annual awards were created by Prince William last year to celebrate people inventing solutions to the ever-growing problem of climate change.
