The Global Change Award 2022 is looking for early-stage ideas that can help create a sustainable fashion future. Ideas that can change the way fashion is seen, worn, and made. Do you have one?


  • The idea’s potential to accelerate the shift from a linear to a planet positive fashion industry, to address the global commons and protect the planet and living conditions
  • The idea’s potential to scale and create impact
  • The financial viability of the idea
  • The novelty of the idea
  • How well suited the team is to make it happen
  • Whether winning the grant would make a difference


  • Share a grant of 1 million euros to develop your innovation.
  • Access to the one-year-long tailormade GCA Impact Accelerator, provided by the H&M Foundation, Accenture and KTH Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm. This includes support enabling the winners to accelerate towards scale and impact.
  • Global visibility, recognition and validation.
  • Once the Accelerator programme is up, all winners are invited to join the Alumni community with past GCA winners, who share tips, support and network with each other.

Application Deadline: October 20, 2021.
