Young Climate Prize

The World Around, a global nonprofit platform making architecture accessible to all, announces it’s seeking a new cohort for its Young Climate Prize 2024 (YCP) program.

YCP shines a spotlight on the communities most impacted by the climate crisis by selecting 25 young activists, inventors, entrepreneurs and thinkers to help scale their projects with resources that are not otherwise available to them. Each finalist will be paired with one mentor from a prestigious interdisciplinary, international group of Design Champions. At the end of the mentorship, an international jury will convene and select three winners to travel to New York City and present their work at The World Around Annual Summit 2025.

At its core, the Young Climate Prize 2024 focuses on what is happening now and how it can change the future. Now seeking applicants for its second cycle, upcoming mentor workshops will accelerate the impact of the work and ideas of their mentees through comprehensive support including marketing, fundraising, graphic design, communication, and film-making.

Eligible projects could include but are not limited to: leadership and activism, innovation and invention, farming, conservation, energy access and equity, clean water initiatives, sustainable construction, engineering, journalism, film, art and digital design

Eligibility:

  • Applicants must be aged 13-25 at the time of application
  • Groups of a maximum of three may enter
  • Applicants can be located anywhere in the world
  • Applicants must be able to demonstrate an existing, functioning project of their own creation that successfully addresses or mitigates climate change in their community

Submission Requirements:
