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.

Award-winning photographer Malin Fezehai travelled with WaterAid to the Thatta region in southeastern Pakistan to document the effects of climate change and water scarcity on the lives of schoolchildren living in the Indus River Delta. Pakistan is highly vulnerable to climate change due to its geography, high dependence on agriculture and limited water resources. Flooding, salinisation of groundwater and high temperatures are all on the increase, with potentially devastating consequences.

With the 31 images in this exhibition, Malin takes us on a journey through the canals and inlets of the Indus River Delta, as they flow from one of Pakistan’s largest and most beautiful lakes, the Keenjhar – the source of drinking water for Karachi’s 16.6 million inhabitants – through to the schools and communities in the region.

Global Program for Clean Water

Today, 650 million people globally live without safe water, and 2.3 billion don’t have adequate sanitation. But when water, sanitation and hygiene education is improved in schools, better health brings improved attendance and it creates a better learning environment that enhances performance. Gender equality is improved, since girls do not need to drop out of school or attend sporadically when they have their periods and there are no toilets available. 

WaterAid and the H&M Foundation have partnered for the three-year, SEK 60 millionGlobal Program for Clean Water which aims to provide sanitation, water and hygiene promotion in schools, with a view to improving health and education and transforming children’s futures. The partnership is working to give 250,000 children globally access to clean water and sanitation in schools by 2017. One of the areas supported by the Global Program is Thatta.
