The Global Change Award, an initiative of the H&M Foundation, aims to find game-changing innovations that can help turn the fashion industry into a planet positive one.

The Award seeks early stage innovations that can help create a future for sustainable style and restored earth systems, including ideas that can change the way fashion is seen, worn, and made. Innovations should break the linear traditions of fashion, be aligned with the UN Sustainable Development Goals, and address the five global commons: biodiversity, climate, land, ocean, and water.

Individuals, groups of two to four individuals, institutions, organizations, and social enterprises from any country are eligible to apply. 

Five winners will share a grant of €1 million and get access to a one-year GCA Impact Accelerator, provided by the H&M Foundation, Accenture, and KTH Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm.

Application Procedures

Application guidelines are available on the Award's website. Applications must be submitted online.
