The Prince of Wales is teaming up with Amazon Prime to launch a new series that will focus on climate change.

The 72-year-old is editor-in-chief of RE:TV, a Prime Video channel that “aims to encourage businesses and individuals around the world to actively work towards sustainability,” according to a press release from the channel.

Twenty episodes from its documentary series will be available to stream globally from Sunday. These episodes will highlight how businesses around the world are tackling climate change, “from recycling coffee, reseeding rainforests, and refining solar to revitalising cities and remodelling fashion,” the press release says.

The series also includes a direct plea to take action from Prince Charles, who is paraphrased in the press release as saying “there is hope but we are running out of time.”

“I’ve spent a lot my lifetime trying to engage people and businesses with the issues and solutions of the climate crisis,” Charles said in “The Time to Act is Now” film on RE:TV, according to the same press release.

“RE:TV was therefore set up with the aim of capturing the will and imagination of humanity and champion the most inspiring solutions for sustainability from around the world,” he added.

Charles isn’t the first royal to launch his own series. Prince Harry’s Apple TV docuseries, “The Me You Can’t See,” which he executive produced with Oprah Winfrey, was released on May 21. The series, which focuses on mental health, features interviews with a range of people including mental-health professionals, celebrities, and Harry himself.

Clarence House did not immediately respond to Insider’s request for comment.
