Meanwhile, William wrote on the post: “In my introduction to Earthshot: How to Save our Planet, the authoritative book of The @EarthshotPrize, I wanted to share the early conversations in 2018…

“…that led to the Prize’s creation and the simple equation that captures my theory behind Earthshot: Urgency + Optimism = Action.

“The book will be available from 30th September.”

The duke was inspired to launch the Earthshot Prize so he could “look my children in the eye and say that I did my bit”.
