The World Around, a public charity organisation based in New York, US has opened its portal for applications into its inaugural Young Climate Prize.
The prize has been designed to invest in the generation born into the climate crisis, and provide visibility, support and mentorship for 25 of the world’s most talented and passionate climate designers under the age of 25.
It is especially for young people who are working on their own self-started projects that address, draw attention to or mitigate climate change in their community.
The chosen applicants will join a bespoke academy and each be mentored by one of our extraordinary Design Champions – the world’s leading climate-change-focused designers, museum directors, curators, writers and business leaders.
You have the option to apply (if qualified), or nominate someone else.
The objective is to find 25 young climate designers, thinkers, makers and activists under the age of 25. After the dedline, the inaugural cohort of 25 winners into World Around Young Climate Prize will be selected and announced in December 2022.
According to The World Around, Design Champions are a global community of some of the most impactful, preeminent individuals of our time – from leading architects, urbanists and designers to anthropologists, game designers and engineers.
Geeky Nigeria reports that The World Around was founded in New York in 2020 by Diego Marroquin and Beatrice Galilee. Their global platform seeks to connect and create a diverse and international network of the most exciting and creative designers and thinkers with wider industry professionals through high-impact educational initiatives and events championing the most progressive ideas and compelling projects.
Nominations and applications are open until October 31, 2022.
