Global Change Award 2019

Fashion forward and eco-conscious? The H&M Foundation wants to hear from you!

The Most Important Trend in Fashion Today

Innovation isn’t just about style or textile - the fashion world today is also keeping a keen ear out to create more sustainable business models.

The H&M Foundation believes in working with talent to build a world without waste. The annual Global Change Award takes on that challenge, to discover early-stage ideas that present new circular approaches that will reinvent the fashion industry’s framework.

What is the Global Change Award?

The Global Change Award is an annual innovation challenge by H&M Foundation, in collaboration with Accenture and the KTH Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm.

The competition is also 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. The Global Change Award catalyzes early innovations that can accelerate the shift from a linear to a circular fashion industry.

Take part and you could be one of the winners to win a €1 million grant and secure a seat at the one-year international Innovation Accelerator program run by H&M Foundation, Accenture and KTH Royal Institute of Technology.
