Cate Blanchett will be presenting at this year’s Earthshot Prize to be held in Singapore. She is a member of the Earthshot Prize Council.
“The Earthshot Prize is, again, highlighting and incentivising courageous, progressive, and inventive solutions that can be rapidly upscaled. We don’t have time for inaction and despair, and the incredible climate solutions from around the globe are cause for genuine hope. The climate solutions showcased by the prize are wildly exciting – exciting because they are so simple, so possible, and so inevitable. The solutions are game-changing, and like all truly game-changing ideas, they have a strange ‘how could we not have thought and implemented this before?!’ quality. I am proud to be a small part of unveiling the Winners.” – Cate Blanchett
The ceremony, held in Singapore on Tuesday 7 November, will reveal the five Winners of The Earthshot Prize. The event will be broadcast on BBC in the United Kingdom, PBS in the United States, various MultiChoice channels across Africa, Mediacorp’s Channel 5, mewatch and Mediacorp YouTube Entertainment Channel in Singapore, and on The Earthshot Prize’s YouTube channel in other territories around the world.
