Prince William, Duke of Cambridge, received Egyptian star Mohamed Salah, the Liverpool pavilion, against the backdrop of the “Earth Shot” award ceremony, which was held in the English capital, London, for the first time, on Sunday evening.
The annual awards were created by the Duke of Cambridge to reward people who are trying to save the planet in various ways.
No celebrity traveled to London for the concert, no plastic was used to build the stage, and guests were asked to “go green”.
Each year, over the next decade, a prize of £1 million will be awarded to 5 projects that work to find solutions to environmental problems on the planet.
Everyone invited to the gala is responsible for presenting one of the dedicated awards, with Liverpool striker Mohamed Salah presenting his first Earthshot award in the Revive Our Oceans category.
Salah attended the ceremony, accompanied by his agent, Rami Abbas, and was seen talking with Prince William and his wife Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge.
And Mohamed Salah gave a speech after receiving a warm applause from the audience, and said: “Good evening, I am happy to be here in this amazing and wonderful concert, I am excited for it, because I grew up next to the water, the waters of the Mediterranean.”
The 29-year-old added: “Water is vital to us, and to the entire planet, seas and oceans. There may be more plastic than fish in the ocean unless we do something about it now.”
“This is terrifying, but ingenious means have been found to revitalize our oceans.”
Salah then presented the three contenders for that award, each of them specialized in devising a solution to save water.
