The annual Global Change Award, by the non-profit H&M Foundation, is one of the world’s leading challenges for early stage innovation, and the largest initiative of its kind in the fashion industry. The aim is to find game-changing ideas, that can make the entire fashion industry circular and help protect our planet and living conditions.
Five Global Change Award entries are selected by an expert panel consisting of advisors with extensive knowledge in the fields of fashion, sustainability, circularity and innovation. The global public is then invited to distribute the €1 million grant between these five innovations, through an online vote.
The five winning concepts also receive access to a one-year innovation accelerator provided by the H&M Foundation, Accenture and the KTH Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm.
The winners are revealed at a Grand Award Ceremony in Stockholm, Sweden.
