“Our planet is now in crisis,” William says in the footage. “Its delicately balanced systems are becoming more and more unstable with every passing year. So, for the sake of future generations, let's act now. Let's take inspiration from the Moonshot and set ourselves a global challenge for this decade. A common goal to unite behind, to mend our broken relationship with our planet and build a better future. It's for this very reason that I launched the Earthshot Prize. The most ambitious environmental prize in history.”
For those who are unaware, the Duke of Cambridge launched the endeavor in 2020 and allocated an annual $65 million prize to be awarded to those who help create “solutions to the world’s greatest environmental problems.”
According to a previous press release, Repairing Our Planet features Earthshot Prize Council Members Sir David Attenborough and showcases the first-ever Earthshot Prize Finalists.
In addition to last night’s premiere, the doc will air on the Discovery Channel in the U.S. on October 16.
We love seeing William on the small screen.
