The European Social Innovation Competition, launched in memory of Diogo Vasconcelos, is a Competition run by the European Commission across all European countries, now in its eighth year. The 2020 Competition is titled Reimagine Fashion – changing behaviours for sustainable fashion.
We are looking for ideas that seek to improve the environmental and social impact of the European fashion market through the development of new products, services and processes, and innovative business models.
We are looking for ideas from one or more of the fields listed below and we encourage solutions that address several of these areas through a systems perspective:
- Solutions for sustainable use and consumption
- Solutions for sustainable production
- Solutions for improving the end of life stage
Wat will the winners get? In addition to mentoring and training, you have the opportunity to win one of three 50,000 Euro cash prizes and ongoing recognition as an Alumni of the Competition with access to the Alumni Network, plus the opportunity to win a further 50,000 Euro cash prize the following year as part of the 2021 Impact Prize.
