The Earth Shot Prize 2024 [Sub-Saharan Africa Region - Central Africa, East Africa, Southern Africa, and West Africa] - CLOSED

The search for the next Winners of The Earthshot Prize 2024 has begun and The James Michel Foundation is proud to be an Official Nominator. The Earthshot Prize is a global environmental prize and platform for impact, dedicated to finding and growing solutions that will repair our planet this decade.

As an Official Nominator, we are part of a global community invited to submit nominations, selected for our ability to identify the most impactful solutions across all sectors, worldwide.

We will be nominating individuals, communities, businesses and organisations whose solutions make the most progress towards achieving the five Earthshots – simple but ambitious goals which if achieved by 2030 will improve life for us all, for generations to come. The Earthshot for the James Michel Foundation, as a Nominator, are ‘Revive our Oceans’ and ‘Fix Our Climate (ocean-based solutions).

The Earthshot Prize will consider solutions which make tangible progress towards one Earthshot. They should be beyond idea stage, have tested their solution in-field or with target audiences, and are at a ‘tipping point’ for scaling their impact within the next five years. For more information about what The Earthshot Prize looks for in their nominees, please read the new 2023 Roadmap.

If you have a solution that is inspiring, inclusive and impactful, please complete the google form ( and if there are any further questions you will receive an email from for a further discussion. You can find out more about The Earthshot Prize at

After nominations are submitted, they are screened as part of a rigorous assessment process culminating in the selection of five winners by Prince William and the Earthshot Prize Council. The Earthshot Prize awards one million pounds each to the 5 winners, and all 15 will enter The Earthshot Fellowship Programme for a year of dedicated support. Finalists and Winners are given an incredible platform to amplify their work, as well as tailored support from The Earthshot Prize and our network of NGOs, businesses, governments, funders and expert mentors.
