Connection is key

When faced with tough challenges regarding the future of our planet and the humans who inhabit it, the scarcest resource is democratized knowledge.

We have made it our mission to accelerate the global movement for sustainable design and construction by putting knowledge in the hands of everyone. Whether it’s a question of transferring knowledge from one generation to the next, or from one neighborhood to another on the other side of the world, the Holcim Foundation has a long experience in bringing people together. We curate and organize events to enable both the blue-sky thinking and down-to-earth knowledge sharing that is critical to transform the way the construction sector designs and builds.

Next Generation Awards Lab - Córdoba 2022

The Holcim Foundation brought together young architects, engineers and urban planners from across The Americas to network with like-minded experts. The Holcim Awards winners in the young professionals category presented their ideas for transforming the building sector, and the workshop examined how to make their solutions a reality.

Two decades of connecting people

From international forums to intimate round tables and workshops, the Holcim Foundation provides regular opportunities for the most cutting-edge thinkers and practitioners to share their insights, ideas and best practices.
