Swarovski Foundation Creatives for Our Future program round two launches
The charitable foundation run by Austrian crystal maker Swarovski has officially opened applications for the second edition of the Creatives for Our Future program, created to identify and accelerate the next generation of creative leaders in sustainability.
Now open through August 8, 2022, the program invites creatives aged 21 to 31 with an interest in fashion, design, art, architecture, science, technology, and engineering to apply for the chance to receive financial support towards their projects and mentorship. Those selected will also be paired with an educational program and industry networking connections.
“We are proud to announce the second year of the Swarovski Foundation Creatives for Our Future program with advisor the United Nations Office for Partnerships and as part of our ongoing mission to foster education, creativity and a sustainable future,” said Marisa Schiestl-Swarovski, chair of the Swarovski Foundation.
“Financial support is paired with an education program and tailored mentorship in collaboration with our global advocates to empower the next generation of creative talent to unlock innovative new approaches to global sustainability challenges.”
As part of the application process, applicants are asked to demonstrate creative ways to accelerate awareness, technologies, or solutions for sustainable development with the goal “to design new ways to a better world”.
The program starts in October with online mentor sessions and master classes, followed by an online mid-program check-in and report of collective progress released in December. The program will then officially conclude in March 2023.
“We must work together to amplify the creativity and talent of young leaders. The Creatives for Our Future program by the Swarovski Foundation is a trailblazing initiative that is keeping the promise of the Sustainable Development Goals,” added Annemarie Hou, acting executive director of the United Nations Office for partnerships.
