The World Around Young Climate Prize Award and Mentorship Program New York City 2024

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

Aim and Benefits

The prize pairs young change-makers with mentors in the international design community who can accelerate the impact of their work and connect them with a global network of like-minded people. 25 finalists will win a life-changing mentorship, and three winners will be flown to New York City to share their work and ideas at The World Around’s prestigious Annual Summit in 2025.

The selected 25 individuals under 25 years of age will be paired and mentored by one of our Design Champions, 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’. Every weekend, The World Around Young Climate Prize will hold virtual workshops to support on everything from marketing and fundraising to graphic design, communications and film-making. These workshops are also a great time to meet the rest of the cohort!

Nominations and applications for the 2025 cycle are free to all.  Simply upload a two-minute video explaining your self-initiated, climate-focused project and add your info.

It’s your turn, your voice!
