In 2022, CAMP Alatoo PF was officially included in the Earthshot Prize nominator network and was entitled to nominate local organisations and individuals for the prestigious award.

According to its vision and objectives, Earthshot accepts innovative ideas from around the world from authors who are inspired and motivated to find better solutions in five priority areas, each with three specific areas.

"Earthshot # 1 - Protect and restore the nature

Ideas or projects should reflect efforts to (1) protect and manage natural carbon deposits, e.g. peatlands; (2) restore forests, wetlands and other ecosystems subject to degradation; and (3) develop and expand agriculture to improve soil health and biodiversity (regenerative agriculture).

"Earthshot # 2 - Clean our Air

The focus is on innovations in (1) involving the public in data collection and public campaigns to protect citizens' rights and interests; (2) stopping fires in forests and farmland; and (3) switching to eco-friendly personal transport.

"Earthshot # 3 - Revwe our oceans

Solutions involve (1) reducing overfishing; (2) developing ocean ecosystem services that mitigate climate change; and (3) changing situations arising from climate variability for the benefit of the ocean.

Solutions proposed within the above areas should advise at least one of the 15 areas listed above and have the potential for global impact on at least one of the Earthshots by 2030. If the ideas/projects/proposals do not fit into any of the above categories, applicants may use the EARTHSHOT OTHER option and propose their own original idea.

The 15 nominees will be selected according to specific criteria by the Earthshot Prize team, and the 5 finalists will be chosen by the Award Board, made up of influential individuals from a variety of sectors who express a strong civic commitment to environmental issues.  Each winner will receive a prize of £1 million (around $1.22 million) to spread innovation and problem solving.
