PRESS RELEASE – 08.10.2020

The Green Link has been selected as an official Nominator for Prince William’s Earthshot Prize.

We are honoured by this recognition and are excited to work with Prince William and The Earthshot Prize Council to nominate turnkey solutions for our net zero future. This comes at a critical turning point in humanity in action against climate change. Like The Green Link, “The Earthshot Prize recognizes the interconnectivity between environmental challenges and the urgent need to tackle them together.”

2020 is a particularly important year. In 10 years time, we will have transformed our economies, lifestyles, and business models to work symbiotically with our natural systems. At The Green Link, we have done the research which shows that we have the technology we need. It’s time to take action.

“As well as identifying evidence-based solutions to the biggest environmental problems the planet faces, The Earthshot Prize aims to turn the current pessimism surrounding environmental issues into optimism that we can rise to the biggest challenges of our time.”

The Earthshot Prize offers a set of challenges rooted in science. Derived of “Moonshot”, a term first used by John F. Kennedy which spurred the MRI scanner and satellite dishes, Earthshot aims to create a wave of ambition and innovation around finding ways to help save the planet.

“The prizes will reward progress across all sectors of industry and society, not just technology and could be awarded to individuals, teams or collaborations – scientists, activists, economists, leaders, governments, banks, businesses, cities, and countries – anyone who is making a substantial development or outstanding contribution to solving our environmental challenges.”

If you’re interested in being nominated for The Earthshot Prize, contact us to set up a time. We’re excited to embark on this challenge together.
