The ultimate goal of the initiative is to provide evidence-based solutions to the world’s greatest environmental problems by the end of the decade.

Prince William took to the Kensington Royal Twitter account on Nov. 1 to kick off the search.

Described as “simple but ambitious goals, which if achieved by 2030 will improve life for us all, for generations to come,” the five Earthshots are: Fix Our Climate, Protect and Restore Nature, Clean Our Air, Revive Our Oceans and Build a Waste-Free-World.
