Five disruptive innovations awarded

In April 2020, we proudly announced our new winners of the Global Change Award. Due to the global pandemic, we too had to make adjustments to make sure we support our winners in the best way possible.

Global Change Award winners 2020 - group shot

When the Global Change Award, called the Nobel Prize of sustainable fashion, turned five years old, we celebrated our five new winners:

Due to COVID-19, we had to cancel the renowned prize ceremony and summit, which used to gather key people from the fashion industry globally to discuss innovation, sustainability and to meet and celebrate our new and past winners.

Digital sessions bring value

Our year-long Innovation Accelerator Program which usually includes study trips to Hong Kong, New York and Stockholm, had to be done digitally instead. Though we still believe the physical meeting is matchless to build relationships and discuss creatively, we realised that our new digital Accelerator Program had many benefits. We now have weekly Accelerator sessions, inviting guests and speakers from all over the world. Apart from our new winners, we also invite our alumni and we almost have 100% attendance every time.
