H&M Foundation: Inviting applications for ‘Global Change Award 2018’ for early stage ideas presenting new circular approaches intended to reinvent the fashion industry.

Award brief: H&M Foundation  is looking for early stage ideas presenting new circular approaches intended to reinvent the fashion industry.

This means changing the way garments are currently designed and produced, shipped, bought, used and recycled by adding disruptive technology, processes, or new business models.

Neither the H&M Foundation nor the company H&M will take any equity or intellectual property rights in the innovations.

Competition Categories: Circularity is not just about recycling. To encourage ideas from a broad circular scope, the Global Change Award 2018 features three categories open for applications. The five winners will be chosen regardless of category – there is no set quota between the categories.
● Digitalization: Apply digital technologies such as connectivity, robotics, artificial intelligence, data, internet of things etc. across the value chain including consumers and garments to make fashion circular.
● Climate positive: Create clothes, services and manufacturing processes that are not only neutral but actually good for the environment, helping to restore and regenerate the environment when being used.
● Waste: Recover the resource and value lost in material, energy and information waste, turning it into materials, products or services. Or simply eliminate waste in the first place.

Apply by October 6 for an additional chance to win a one week Innovation Accelerator.

The Global Change Award 2018 is open for applications September 13 – October 31, 2017. Anyone who applies on or before October 6th will automatically have the chance of winning our Early Bird competition.

The Early Bird winner will be invited to join the five winners of the Global Change Award 2018 in one of the trips which is part of their one-year Innovation Accelerator. The trip will offer exclusive industry insight as well as opportunities to network and learn more about circularity and the fashion value chain.

The Early Bird winner will be announced in conjunction with the Grand Award ceremony in March 2018. Applying as an Early Bird does not affect your chances of winning the Global Change Award. The winner of the Early Bird winner is not required to travel to the ceremony in Stockholm.
