Energy, Environment & Climate

24 October 2022/Categories: Grants_and_Funding

This global innovation challenge takes on one of the biggest challenges facing today’s fashion industry – to create fashion for a growing population, while reducing its impact on the environment.

Fashion retailer H&M’s Global Change Award aims to find, support and scale disruptive ideas that can protect the planet and turn the fashion and textile industry into a ‘planet positive’ one. The programme is supporting innovators who can transform fashion and change the way it is seen, worn, and made.

Five winning teams will share a grant of €1 million (each winner receives €200,000). They will get access to a one-year-long GCA Impact Accelerator which includes coaching and support from the H&M Foundation and its partners Accenture, KTH Royal Institute of Technology and The Mills Fabrica.

The award is open to institutions, organisations and social businesses, as well joint ventures, consortiums and other types of partnerships. Individuals or groups of two to four individuals from any country may apply (excluding solely commercial entities, ie corporations).

The deadline for applications is 8 December 2022.

This programme operates on an annual basis.

The current round opened on 20 October 2022. The deadline for applications is 8 December 2022.
