H & M Foundation Global Change Award 2021 | €1 million Grant & Fully Funded to Stockholm, Sweden
To speed up the process of creating a sustainable future for fashion and protecting our planet, we launched the Global Change Award in 2015. It has been called the Nobel Prize of fashion and is one of the biggest innovation challenges in the world for early stage innovations, and the first of its kind in the fashion industry. We invite innovators and entrepreneurs all over the world to submit their ideas. The five most promising innovations are selected by a panel of international experts and embark on a one year-long Accelerator Program.
The aim of the Global Change Award is to find and support game-changing innovations that can break the linear traditions of fashion and completely change the way garments are designed, produced, shipped, bought, used and recycled.
