Global Change Award

23 March 2016

The H&M Foundation

As of March 2016 the H&M Conscious Foundation changes its name to H&M Foundation in order to simplify communications.

ABOUT THE CHALLENGE

The Global Change Award is an innovation challenge, initiated by H&M Conscious Foundation in August 2015. By catalyzing green, truly game-changing ideas the aim is to protect the planet and close the loop for fashion. As the competition closed on 31 October, more than 2 700 innovators from 112 countries had signed up to share their ideas on new circular approaches throughout the whole value chain of the fashion industry; changing the way fashion is designed and produced, shipped, bought, used and recycled.

Five winners will share a grant of €1 000,000 and get tailor-made support for one year from H&M Conscious Foundation, Accenture and KTH Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm. They have developed a one year innovation accelerator to support the winners in developing their innovations.
