Following a performance by Coldplay and Korean boy band BTS, powered by 60 people pedalling bicycles, William gave a stark warning that ‘time is running out’ to tackle climate change, adding: ‘The actions we choose or choose not to take in the next 10 years will determine the fate of the planet for the next thousand.’The future is ours to determine, and if we set our minds to it, nothing is impossible.’ William closed the event by announcing that the following year’s Earthshot event would be held in the United States – where his brother Prince Harry lives with Meghan Markle.The first-ever five winners were revealed tonight at a glittering ceremony held in London.Each winner will receive £1million prize money and a global network of support to scale their cutting-edge environmental solutions to repair our planet.

The five winners, which span the globe from Costa Rica to India, include transformative technologists, innovators, an entire country, and a pioneering city and were chosen for their ground-breaking solutions to the greatest environmental challenges facing our planet.The first award to be handed out went to Gator Halpern and Sam Teicher of Coral Vita – a project which grows coral on land to replenish life in dying ocean ecosystems.Its methods grow coral up to 50 times faster than typical methods and improves resilience to the impact of climate change.They beat competitors Pristine Seas and Living Sea Walls.

Emma Thompson presented the fourth Earthshot award to the city of Milan, whose Food Waste Hubs aim to halve waste by 2030.Each hub recovers food, primarily from supermarkets and companies’ canteens, and gives it to NGOs who distribute it to citizens.

And presenting the fifth and final award, The Duchess of Cambridge said: ‘Nature is vital to us all…But for too long we’ve neglected our wild spaces and now w’ere facing a number of tipping points.If we don’t act now we will permanently destabilise our planet and rob our children of the future they deserve.’ The award went to the Republic of Costa Rica, whose Ministry for Environment paid citizens to protect forests, plant trees, and restore ecosystems, leading to the country’s forests doubling in size.
