Workshops for Awards Coordinators were held in Zurich, Switzerland (top), Bogotá, Colombia (bottom left), and Singapore (bottom right). Awards Coordinators are part of the Foundation’s global network to promote its initiatives.

The LafargeHolcim Foundation relies on the support of local representatives in more than 80 countries on all continents. Each country of LafargeHolcim assigns an Awards Coordinator to support and promote the initiatives of the Foundation, including its Awards competition within their respective country.

To align these efforts, the Foundation conducts a series of workshops where Awards coordinators learn more about the critical role of sustainable construction in different regions of the world, and effective methods to foster discussion and action. 

Recent workshops were attended by almost 100 representatives from 48 countries: Algeria, Argentina, Australia, Azerbaijan, Bangladesh, Brazil, Bulgaria, Canada, Chile, China, Colombia, Costa Rica, Croatia, Ecuador, Egypt, El Salvador, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, India, Indonesia, Iraq, Italy, Ivory Coast, Jordan, Kenya, Lebanon, Mauritius, Mexico, Moldova, Morocco, Nicaragua, Nigeria, Philippines, Poland, Romania, Singapore, Slovenia, Spain, Sri Lanka, Switzerland, United Arab Emirates, Uganda, United Kingdom, USA, Vietnam and Zambia.

Search Help

Our website search engine covers the web pages including project descriptions and expert profiles, PDFs, images and videos on the Holcim Foundation website. To improve your search results, here are some tips:

Basic search

Our search defaults to term-pairing AND. If you search sustainable construction - then the search engine will look for any items containing sustainable AND construction


photovoltaic OR solar

Looks for either word


(clay OR mud) AND (school OR university)

Combine alternative terms for more specific searching


geothermal -heating

Excludes a term from results, automatically ANDs other terms listed


"zero carbon"

Use quotation marks to search for a specific phrase or combination

Wildcards (one or more characters)


Asterisk (*) matches any word or phrase - so archit* will find architect, architecture, architectural as well as architrave
