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 industry, the aim is to protect the planet and our living conditions. We want to turn the fashion industry into a planet positive one and for 2022 we are looking for ideas that address the earth’s global commons: land, water, oceans, climate and biodiversity.
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 and KTH Royal Institute of Technology.
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.
Accenture is a leading global professional services company, providing a broad range of services and solutions in strategy, consulting, digital, technology and operations.
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.
