Call For Applications: The World Around Young Climate Prize 2025

The prize was conceived by the 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. 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.

The selected 25 individuals under 25 years of age will be paired and mentored by one of The World Around’s Design Champions, a group of world-renowned 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!


  • 25 under 25 will win a mentorship and three winners will win a trip to New York to present their work at The World Around’s prestigious Annual Summit in 2025.


  • Open to anyone between 13 and 25 years old who has been using design, architecture, technology and creative and cultural skills in the fight against the climate emergency.
  • Applicants can be from anywhere in the world.
