In October 2020 the University of Cape Town (UCT) announced it's status as an Official Nominator for the Earthshot Prize. The Earthshot Prize is the most prestigious global environment prize in history, aiming to find new solutions to the world’s biggest environmental problems.

As an Official Nominator, UCT has been invited to submit nominations across all five Earthshot categories, seeking to identify the most impactful solutions across all sectors, from grassroots to businesses.

The ACDI is supporting the process of 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.

Please contact before 22 January 2021 for more information on the nomination process.
