The program will pair 25 people under the age of 25 with Design Champions, a group of internationally renowned architects, urbanists, and designers, who will act as their mentors. Each mentee will have at least three hour-long sessions with their mentor to enhance their projects, brainstorm new ideas, and gain inspiration from a supportive expert.

The cohort will take part in a “Design Academy” where weekend virtual workshops will cover topics ranging from fundraising and marketing to graphic design, communications, and film-making. These workshops will also be an opportunity for the cohort members to connect and collaborate with each other.


  • The competition will select 25 individuals under the age of 25 to receive mentorship, and three of them will be awarded a trip to New York to showcase their work at the esteemed Annual Summit of The World Around in 2025.

Eligibility Criteria

  • Anyone aged between 13 and 25, who have utilized design, architecture, technology, as well as creative and cultural skills to combat the climate crisis, can participate.
