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.
Being amongst peers that share the same passion for sustainable architecture and design feels really inspiring!
The keynotes, discussions and workshops of the Forum bring together an enormous variety of experience across every facet of sustainable construction.
Sharing our experiences makes me feel that creating change really IS possible.
