The Duke of Cambridge has announced the inaugural 15 finaliste van sy ambisieuse Earthshot -prys.

Prins William revealed the finalists’ names on his project’s YouTube channel on Friday. Among the finalists are a teenager from India who has designed a solar-powered ironing cart, the nation of Costa Rica, which has pioneered a project paying local citizens to restore natural ecosystems, and a Chinese app that allows its citizens to hold polluters to account.

There are no UK finalists but organisers believe homegrown talent will feature in the environmental award in future years.

In a video message to launch the finalists, William said: “The ambition, quality and range of submissions has been amazing, and should fill us all with optimism and hope that our goals for this decisive decade are achievable.”
