"It's incredible what we humans can build, but we often forget that it comes with a cost," the suit-clad father-of-three states while walking around in a high-rise building that boasts floor-to-ceiling windows. "We can create a different future, a better future, but only if we reach for it now."

The rest of the trailer features appearances from other environmentalists, all revealing how we can make the world a better place.


Created last year by William, the Earthshot Prize was "designed to incentivize change and help repair our planet over the next 10 years."

The five-part-documentary, which streams on October 17 via discovery+, highlights the Earthshot Prize's 15 finalists and their work. Each applicant is focused on one of the five categories: Protect and Restore Nature, Clean Our Air, Revive Our Oceans, Build a Waste-Free World, and Fix Our Climate.

"Over half a century ago, President Kennedy’s ‘Moonshot’ programme united millions of people around the goal of reaching the moon. Inspired by this, The Earthshot Prize aims to mobilise collective action around our unique ability to innovate, problem solve and repair our planet," the Duke of Cambridge explained of the initiative.

He continued, "I am honoured to introduce the 15 innovators, leaders, and visionaries who are the first ever finalists for The Earthshot Prize. They are working with the urgency required in this decisive decade for life on Earth and will inspire all of us with their optimism in our ability to rise to the greatest challenges in human history."

William will also be writing the introduction to Earthshot: How to Save Our Planet, which will release this year.
