Ardern said “The idea that this isn’t just a notion in a lab or on paper, but this is an idea that can have a tangible effect in the real world. And the reason for that is the Prince has always had a very clear vision. The ideas exist. We just need to bring them to the world and bring them quickly. That’s what Earthshot is all about.”
