WMO seizes this occasion to promote the Earthshot Prize, which is designed to incentivize change and help repair our planet over the next ten years. It aims to turn the current pessimism surrounding environmental issues into optimism by highlighting the ability of human ingenuity to bring about change and by inspiring collective action. WMO encourages all WMO Members and stakeholders to consider submitting proposals for the Earthshot Prize. Nominations for the 2022 Prize will open in January 2022.
