Prize Connecting Young Champions of the Earth to International Mentors
Sponsored by The World Around with the support of Meta Open Arts, the inaugural Young Climate Prize is an open invitation for young people aged 13 to 25 anywhere in the world to share their work and activism related to climate change. The prize is intended as an investment in the generation born into this climate crisis by highlighting their creativity and passion, and connecting them to a wide and expansive network of practitioners who can champion their projects.
The World Around will connect a cohort of 25 talented young visionaries with international Design Champions, in a curated academy of talks, workshops, and one-on-one mentorship—available in multiple languages—resulting in three winners who will be announced on Earth Day 2023. There is no academic requirement and no need to have a formal design education.
Deadlines: Nominations are now open. June–October 2022: Nominees and applicants will formally submit their projects and answers to a series of prompt questions, along with supporting evidence of the success of their project. November–December 2022: Design Champions and The World Around will review all applications and form this year’s cohort of 25 under 25. Each will be paired with a Design Champion, who will act as a mentor and offer guidance and support. January–March 2023: The cohort will join a series of curated workshops organized by The World Around and led by Design Champions. Selected cohort members will be invited to present their work during The World Around annual summit in New York. March 2023: The cohort will resubmit their work for review by an international jury that will narrow the cohort to a group of finalists. Earth Day 2023: Three winners will be announced.
