Prince William, founder of The Earthshot Prize, says: 'The Earth is at a tipping point and we face a stark choice: either we continue as we are and irreparably damage our planet, or we remember our unique power as human beings and our continual ability to lead, innovate and problem-solve. People can achieve great things. The next 10 years present us with one of our greatest tests - a decade of action to repair the Earth.'

The Earthshot concept is simple: Urgency + Optimism = Action.

We have 10 years to turn the tide on the environmental crisis, but we need the world's best solutions and one shared goal - to save our planet.

It's not too late, but we need collective action now.

The Earthshots are unifying, ambitious goals for our planet which, if achieved by 2030, will improve life for all of us, for the rest of life on Earth, and for generations to come. They are to:

- Protect and Restore Nature

- Clean our Air

- Revive our Oceans

- Build a Waste-Free World

- Fix our Climate

Earthshot: How to Save Our Planet is the first definitive book about how these goals can tackle the environmental crisis. It is a critical contribution to the most important story of the decade.
