Its final episode will look at the problem of waste and its effect on the planet, from the dumping of plastics in oceans to wasted food produced with resources like water, fertilisers and electricity. William says: “We stand at a fork in the road, if we continue on our current path and the natural world will decline around us, and with it potentially everything we take for granted.
“But if we take the other path, if we strive to find solutions to our biggest problems, we can create a different future for our children and grandchildren, a better future.”
Each episode of the Prince’s series is devoted to one of five global problems adopted as the Earthshot Prize categories: protect and restore nature; clean our air; revive our oceans; build a waste-free world and fix our climate.
Every year until the end of the decade, the winners of the five Earthshots will each receive £1million for their project.
