Prince William establishes a global award for environmental protection.

Britain's Prince William is today launching a global prize with a prize fund of 50 million British pounds, which aims to find solutions to the most pressing environmental problems on the planet, Reuters and the BBC reported.

The Earthshot Prize will award five million pounds of prize money over the next ten years for projects in the fields of nature protection and restoration, cleaner air, ocean restoration, waste reduction and climate change.

From November 1 this year begins the procedure for nominations of projects for the first prizes, which will be announced at a ceremony in the autumn of next year.

"By 2030, we hope to have made great strides in addressing some of the major problems facing the Earth," Prince William, 38, told naturalist David Attenborough of the BBC. Both are engines of the project.

The British royal family is publicly committed to protecting the environment. Crown Prince Charles, Prince William's father, has been campaigning and talking about the impact of climate change for decades.

Kensington Palace said the awards would provide a minimum of 50 solutions to the world's environmental problems by 2030.

The project has over 100 partners around the world who will nominate nominees for the awards. The first ceremony will take place in 2021 in London, and then will be organized in various cities around the world.
