Prince William is continuing to do his bit when it comes to dealing with the climate crisis.

The Duke of Cambridge spoke to global leaders at the Accelerating Clean Technology Innovation and Deployment event at COP26 in Glasgow on Tuesday.

William gave a shoutout to the first 15 finalists in his £50 million global Earthshot Prize mission during his powerful speech.

The royal said, “Ours is a common mission. To look without fear or despair at the challenges ahead in this crucial decade, and to believe that we humans have the ingenuity to make the seemingly impossible, possible.

“But only if we put our collective minds to it. For many of you, world leaders and governments in this room, that means demonstrating leadership and persuading your electorate how much this matters.”

He continued, “For others, business leaders and philanthropists, it means transforming the clean, green option into the cheapest, best and most obvious choice.

“Put together, it means ensuring that the brightest and boldest amongst us, in all sectors of society, are given the support to find the answers to the most important question we face: how to repair our planet.

“I’m pleased to tell you that joining us in this room today are some of those best and brightest minds. The eco-innovators of our planet. They are the inaugural Earthshot Prize Finalists,” he went on, talking a bit about each one.
