Swarovski Foundation and Advisor The United Nations Office For Partnerships Announce Second Year of Global Grant Program to Empower Future Creative Leaders in Sustainable Development
LONDON, July 20, 2022 /PRNewswire-AsiaNet/ --

The Swarovski Foundation announces the second year of Creatives for Our Future, 
a global mentorship and grant program designed with advisor the United Nations 
Office for Partnerships to identify and accelerate the next generation of 
creative leaders in sustainability.

Swarovski Foundation Creatives for Our Future commences with a four-week open 
call to all creatives worldwide aged 21 to 30 from disciplines including 
fashion, design, art, architecture, science, technology, and engineering – with 
no limit to creative medium. Successful applicants will have a keen interest 
in, demonstration of, or exemplary potential to use the creative process to 
accelerate awareness, technologies, or solutions for sustainable development. 
The Swarovski Foundation aims to draw in a diverse pool of applicants globally 
and bring new voices and perspectives to the creative process.

Selected grantees will receive financial support to further their projects and 
design new pathways for a better world. The funding is paired with an 
educational program in collaboration with top international institutions, 
tailored mentorship, and industry networking connections with guidance from the 
Swarovski Foundation. Each participating Program Advocate, leaders in their 
field, will represent the broadest range of creative disciplines from fashion 
and art to technology and science.

Throughout the program, grantees will be provided support to develop the 
innovations and practices outlined in their applications and drive progress 
toward the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The successful grantees will 
be invited to New York in September 2022 during the United Nations General 
Assembly for their first high-level industry network engagement to not only 
announce the Creatives for our Future program's second year but to also meet 
their fellow participants.

Further details on the program, application process and grants can be found on []

Worldwide applications will be accepted from July 11th to August 8th, 2022 
(11:59pm GMT). Successful grantees and a complete list of Program Advocates 
will be announced in September 2022 to coincide with the United Nations General 
Assembly in New York.
