Young climate change activists Luisa Neubauer and Ernest Gibson join Prince William’s Earthshot Prize

Two young climate change activists have joined the Earthshot Prize judging panel, Prince William has announced. Luisa Neubauer and Ernest Gibson have been described by the Prince as bringing “much needed youthfulness and expertise and activism” to the panel. The Earthshot Prize is a competition that aims to help solve “some of the world’s greatest environmental challenges”. Every year until 2030 the judges will give out five prizes of £1 million – with a total prize fund of £50 million.
Luisa and Ernest will be joining Prince William, David Attenborough and pop singer Shakira on the judging panel. Luisa is 24 and she is the face of a movement called Fridays for Future in Germany. Similarly to Greta Thunberg, Luisa inspired many young people to protest for change to help the environment. Ernest is from Fiji, he’s the co-coordinator for 350 Fiji, a regional youth-led climate change network, and a member of UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres’s new Youth Advisory Group on Climate Change.
