The GCA is looking for bright minds that can transform fashion and change the way it is seen, worn, and made. The aim of the Global Change Award is to find, support and scale disruptive ideas that can protect our planet and turn the fashion and textile industry into a planet positive one.
Regenerative fibres, resources looping in never-ending cycles and reimagined supply chain solutions. The momentum to transform the industry has never been stronger.
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, each winner receives 200,000 euro and venture into the year-long GCA Impact Accelerator programme which includes invaluable coaching and support from the H&M Foundation, its partners Accenture, KTH Royal Institute of Technology and The Mills Fabrica.
