H&M wants your ideas on how to make fashion circular #WearableWednesday
Do you have an idea that could change the way fashion works? Apply here for the Global Change Award from H&M and you could get a grant!
We are looking for early stage ideas that present new circular approaches that reinvent the fashion industry. This means changing the way garments are designed and produced, shipped, bought, used and recycled today by adding disruptive technology or new business models.
The competition has three categories open for applications: circular business models, circular materials and circular processes. Learn more about the competition categories.
Global Change Award is open for anyone to apply (check out our FAQ for a few exceptions). Five winners, selected by our expert panel, will share a €1 million grant and get access to an innovation accelerator provided by H&M Foundation, Accenture and KTH Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm.

Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
