Prince William signs a surprise to inspire young people


Prince William hopes to inspire a love of nature among young schoolchildren as he teams up with Sir David Attenborough to launch an environmental guide for children.

The Prince of Wales’s Earthshot Prize has teamed up with the Hachette Children’s Group on a non-fiction book aimed at helping children learn more about the planet and climate change, via

The book, titled The Earthshot Prize: A Handbook For Dreamers And Thinkers: Solutions to Repair Our Planet, was written by Colin Butfield and Jonnie Hughes and is expected to be published on October 12, 2023.

The book will also include contributions from Sir David Attenborough, actress Shailene Woodley and Christiana Figueres, former executive secretary of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change.

“This first publication of the prestigious Earthshot Prize aimed at the next generation of innovative climate solutions is the ultimate handbook for young people looking for practical solutions to help repair the planet,” the publisher said in a statement.

Wren & Rook Publishing Director Laura Horsley said: “We are delighted to be working with The Earthshot Prize to create an inspiring and practical environmental guide for children.”

He continued, “The book celebrates our planet’s diverse and rich habitats, amazing animals and magnificent landscapes and introduces them to Earthshot innovators, entrepreneurs and game changers from Kenyan environmentalist Wangari Maathai to Sir David Attenborough. Young readers will discover how they can become the creators of the future, developing solutions to the world’s biggest problems.”

The Earthshot Prize was established by the Prince and the Royal Foundation in 2020 to find solutions to ‘repair’ the planet. The YouTube channel will share mini-documentaries, Q&As and YouTube Shorts to help the Award reach a younger and more international audience.
