As per news report of NDTV, one of the finalists of the Earthshot Prize, dubbed the "Eco Oscars", Vinisha Umashankar was invited by Prince William to speak at a meeting discussing clean technology and innovation at the climate conference. "Today I ask, with all due respect, that we stop talking and start doing. We, The Earthshot Prize Winners and Finalists, need you to back our innovations, projects and solutions, not an economy built on fossil fuels, smoke and pollution. We need to stop thinking about old debates because we need a new vision for a new future.
