Non-profit organisation The World Around has invited me to join an international cohort of ‘design champions’ to mentor the 25 best applicants to this year’s Young Climate Prize.
The Young Climate Prize is calling for young budding designers and entrepreneurs to come forward with their own design-led initiatives that help mitigate climate change. Anyone under the age of 25, who was born into the climate crisis and is uniquely affected by it, is invited to submit their projects. These will be reviewed and selected applicants will be mentored by the Design Champions, who include Paola Antonelli, Aric Chen, Elizabeth Diller, Joseph Grima and Alice Rawsthorn, amongst many others from across the world. Finalists will present at the Guggenheim Museum in New York.
Individuals can apply or be nominated via youngclimateprize.com before the 31st October 2022 deadline.
