MOST READ

Stroud eco-warrior Dale Vince has featured in Prince William’s BBC documentary series.

The Queen’s eldest grandson spoke to pioneers renowned for finding innovative solution to the most pressing climate issues in the BBC documentary – The Earthshot Prize: Repairing Our Planet.

Vince, the Ecotricity chief and Forest Green owner, showcased his Sky Diamonds – the world’s first zero-impact diamonds made from carbon, water and energy sourced directly from the elements at a “sky mining facility” in Stroud.

WATCH Dale Vince explain the concept behind Sky Diamonds.

The series also features singer Shakira, former UN climate chief Christiana Figueres, and football star Dani Alves.

Speaking in a short trailer, the Duke said: ‘This is a moment for hope, not fear.

‘It’s for this very reason that I launched the Earthshot Prize, the most ambitious environmental prize in history. A decade of action to repair our planet.’

Sir David Attenborough, who also hosts the show, tells viewers: ‘Just imagine what might be possible.’

Each episode will focus on a different environmental issue – protecting and restoring nature, fixing the climate, combating air pollution, reviving the oceans, and tackling waste.

Episodes will air in the build-up to the United Nations Cop26 climate summit hosted in Glasgow from November 1.
