||Planet Earth is faced with a set of Grand Challenges whose solutions are critical to humanity over the next decades. To be responsible stewards of the planet and to ensure human progress, we must find sustainable solutions for alternative energy, safeguarding our environment, improving healthcare, advancing knowledge, and creating the technologies that enhance the way we live. Five nominated individuals or teams will split a $15,000 prize. In addition, a professional video of each of the five winning projects, including new interviews and footage filmed during March and/or April, will be produced and featured at the April summit in Boston; and travel support will be provided to bring the winners to the Boston summit.
