About The Glpbal Change Award
The Global Change Award was initiated in 2015 by non-profit H&M Foundation. By catalysing early-stage innovations that can accelerate the transformation of the fashion and textile industry, the aim is to protect the planet and our living conditions. We want to turn the industry into a planet positive one and for 2023 we are looking for ideas within three categories:
1. Regenerate – solutions towards positive effects
2. Repurpose – solutions towards circularity
3. Reimagine – solutions we have not even thought about yet
Five winning teams share a grant of 1 million euros and get access to a one-year-long GCA Impact Accelerator provided by the H&M Foundation, in collaboration with Accenture, KTH Royal Institute of Technology and The Mills Fabrica.
Neither H&M Foundation nor H&M Group take any equity or intellectual property rights in the innovations as the aim is to benefit the entire industry.

KTH Royal Institute of Technology is one of Europe’s leading technical and engineering universities, as well as a key centre of intellectual talent and innovation.
