Three exciting emerging designers under 30, each using a variety of methods to respond to the climate crisis:

Scarlett Yang challenges waste in the fashion industry through experimenting with sustainable technologies to create innovative designs.

Richard Ashton is a co-founder of climate club, Adapt, who use design, art, humour and contemporary culture to communicate climate issues and reframe climate activism.

Grace Emily Manning’s interdisciplinary approach is driven by environmentalism, encompassing film, performance and experimental storytelling.

The V&A Youth Collective is a cohort of young people ages 16-24, who help shape our events and content for young people, while gaining inspiring insights into creative careers, the museum sector and skills development opportunities.
