Earthshot Prize 2023

Nieuws - 17 november 2022

The search for the winners of The Earthshot Prize 2022 has begun and TU Delft is proud to be an official Nominator. Launched in 2020, the Earthshot Prize is one of the most prestigious global environment prize in history, aiming to find new solutions to the world’s biggest environmental problems.

The Earthshot Prize identifies and supports solutions which make tangible progress towards one of the five Earthshots :
1. Protect and Restore Nature
2. Clean our Air
3. Revive our Oceans
4. Build a Waste-Free World
5. Fix our Climate

As an Official Nominator, TU Delft is one of over 300 organisations from across the world, invited to submit nominations across all five Earthshot categories. One of our 2022 nominees – the Great Bubble Barrier – was selected as a finalist.

In 2023, we will be nominating individuals, communities, businesses and organisations whose solutions make the most progress towards achieving the five Earthshots. Eligible solutions 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.

We request your help in identifying inspiring, inclusive and impactful initiatives to nominate. You can send suggestions to by January 11, 2023. In your email, please indicate which Earthshot category it concerns and include a relevant website link. 

The Eartshot Prize has identified three focus areas per theme and will assess solutions based on six cross cuting filters. Please click here to to learn more details.

After nominations are submitted, they are screened as part of a rigorous assessment process culminating in selection of five winners by the Earthshot Prize Council.

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. The five winners also receive a one-of-a-kind award and a one-million-pound grant to scale their impact.
