About the Prize Design

The Rainforest Prize Design is an ambitious initiative that aims to identify transformative breakthroughs, with the purpose of incentivizing individuals and groups to implement them.

This project uses multiple methodologies to assess the current landscape of the Amazon Rainforest and trajectories to future scenarios, including a preferred future of sustainability.

The final product of this process of researching and discussions, the Prize Design, will provide the outline of what the winning team must accomplish to be awarded the prize.

The Challenge

The Amazon Rainforest is under attack. The vast rainforest spans 550 million hectares, but more than 20% of the Amazon biome has been lost already and more is vanishing every minute – unless we stop it.

The time to end the destruction of the rainforest is now.

The Goal

We are designing an XPRIZE to accelerate and scale innovation that unlocks possibilities to end deforestation and save the Amazon Rainforest.

The Prize Design will provide the outline of what the winning team must accomplish to be awarded the prize and define the parameters of the XPRIZE competition. It is audacious yet achievable.

Your Role

The community is currently debating the challenges and opportunities associated with ending deforestation in the Amazon Rainforest.

We invite you to join us and other experts from around the world to share your wisdom with the crowd and advise us on the design of XPRIZE’s Amazon Rainforest XPRIZE!
