The World Around: 2025 Young Climate Prize and Mentorship Programme (USA, Online)

'The World Around' light text on a dark background.

Applications are open for the second cycle of The Young Climate Prize award and mentorship programme. The prize was conceived by New York-based non-profit organisation The World Around to support the generation of designers and activists who were born into the climate crisis and uniquely positioned to address it.

The selected 25 individuals under 25 years of age will be paired and mentored by a Design Champion, a group of world renown architects, urbanists and designers. Each mentee will have at least three hour-long sessions with their mentor to amplify their projects, come up with new ideas and get inspiration from a caring professional. In addition to the 1:1 mentorships, the cohort will also embark on a ‘Design Academy’, between September and December 2024. Every weekend, The World Around Young Climate Prize will hold virtual workshops to provide support on everything, from marketing and fundraising to graphic design, communications and filmmaking.

Anyone aged 13 to 25 can submit their work. Applications and the programme are free for all and three winners –Young Climate Designer, Young Climate Voice and Young Climate Visionary – will be selected by a jury to present their work at The World Around’s annual summit in April 2025 in New York City, USA.
