Application for the Global Change Award 2023 Officially Opened

The Global Change Award, an innovation challenge initiated by the H&M Foundation, invites applicants to compete in its 2023 edition. Aiming to lead the change towards a planet-positive fashion and textile industry, the foundation seeks bright minds that can transform fashion and change the way it is seen, worn, and made.

This year’s scope has been updated and dictates that the winning ideas should fall into one of three categories:

  • Regenerate – solutions towards planet positive effects
  • Repurpose – solutions towards circularity
  • Reimagine – solutions we have not even thought about yet

Five winning teams share a grant of 1 million euros and venture into the year-long GCA Impact Accelerator programme which includes invaluable coaching and support from the H&M Foundation and partners Accenture, KTH Royal Institute of Technology, and the Mills Fabrica. 

Applications already opened in October and will close on December 08, 2022. After the screening process is done together with a broad network of industry experts and partners, the winners will be notified in March and announced publicly on 8 June 2023 at an Award Ceremony in Stockholm.

The year-long GCA Impact Accelerator programme commences soon after.
