All life on Earth depends on clean air and water, biodiversity, healthy forests, fields, oceans and a stable climate. These resources – called the global commons – regulates the stability and resilience on our planet.
Today however, scientists warn that the planetary boundaries are being over-exploited and strained. Radical transformation is needed. To secure a safe and just future for humanity and all living things, the global commons need to be protected, respected and restored.
This is why we are looking for early stage ideas adressing one or several of the global commons, to create a sustainable fashion future. Do you have one? Make sure to apply.
