The Future of Sustainable Fashion What can you learn from the winners of the Global Change Award?
The Global Change Award is an innovation challenge initiated by H&M Foundation in collaboration with Accenture and the KTH Royale Institute of Technology. Launched in 2015, the Global Change Award is looking for game changing ideas that can make fashion circular.
By catalysing early innovations that can accelerate the shift from a linear to a circular fashion industry, the aim is to protect the planet and our living conditions. An expert panel annually selects five winners that share a grant of EUR 1million and get access to a one-year innovation accelerator provided by the H&M Foundation, Accenture and the KTH Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm.
The H&M Foundation and Accenture will host 15-20 fashion retail brands from the fashion industry in a backstage meet-up at Millennial 20/20 in London offering an opportunity to meet two of the 2015/16 Global Change Award winners and participate in a roundtable discussion on the future of sustainable fashion.
The H&M Foundation is a non-profit global foundation, privately funded by the Stefan Persson family, founders and main owners of H&M. Its mission is to drive long lasting positive change and improve living conditions by investing in people, communities and innovative ideas. Through partnerships with prominent organizations around the globe, the H&M Foundation drives change within four focus areas: Education, Water, Equality and Planet.
