MultiChoice, a member of The Earthshot Prize Global Alliance, is calling for entries from African organizations for the 2024 Earthshot Prize. This global environment-saving initiative aims to discover, accelerate, and scale ground-breaking solutions to repair and regenerate the planet.
The Earthshot Prize awards five winners annually, each receiving a £1 million prize grant to scale their projects. This initiative is an excellent opportunity for innovators, entrepreneurs, community leaders, and activists working on cutting-edge solutions to climate change.
Entrants can submit their innovative solutions into any of the five categories of the Earthshot Prize: Protect and Restore Nature, Clean our Air, Revive our Oceans, Build a Waste-Free World, and Fix our Climate12.
How to Enter
As an official nominator, MultiChoice has established an entry portal and asks that all submissions be submitted by 30 November 2023. Representatives from MultiChoice will then review these entries and officially nominate selections directly to The Earthshot Prize.
Last year, a total of 108 entries from Africa were received, and two have made it to the final stage of the 2023 leg. These include ABALOBI and Freetown the Treetown, who were chosen from over 1,300 nominees. Since its inception, five African organizations have been selected as finalists. In 2022, Mukuru Clean Stoves, a start-up providing cleaner-burning stoves to women in Kenya, won the Clean Our Air Earthshot.
Benefits for Winners
In addition to the £1 million prize, winners also benefit from a global network of professional and technical support to scale their work. This includes access to resources across numerous professions and sectors, including manufacturing, retail, supply chains, legal advice, digital technology, business strategy, and government relations via The Earthshot Prize Global Alliance.
