Are you a young leader who is making an impact in innovation for affordable and sustainable housing & supporting refugee and vulnerable communities? Apply now for the Building for Peace Scholarship 2023.

Everyone has the right to a place to call home. But for the 103 million people who are forcibly displaced today, conflict, violence, persecution and climate disasters have stripped them of this basic human need. With nowhere to turn, many displaced people seek shelter, often facing substandard living conditions. They have no guarantee of safety, or protection against the cold, damp, heat, rain or wind. Many settlements are meant to be temporary, but displaced people can spend years, and even decades, living in camps.

Driven by its purpose to build progress for people and the planet, Holcim partnered with the Norman Foster Foundation to develop the Essential Homes Research Project, a model for comfortable, durable and dignified housing for people in displacement. In this partnership, the Norman Foster Foundation designed essential housing to provide safety, comfort and wellbeing for displaced communities who can live in temporary settlements for over twenty years. Holcim provides its most innovative and sustainable solutions, from ECOPact low carbon concrete to Elevate Insulation boards, to make sustainable building accessible to all.

To broaden the conversation around providing essential housing for all, Holcim is pleased to partner with One Young World to offer the Building for Peace Scholarship. This programme will enable five young leaders to participate in the upcoming One Young World Summit 2023 as part of Holcim’s global delegation. In particular this scholarship will support young leaders who are making an impact in one of the following areas:

  • Innovation for affordable and sustainable housing.
  • Supporting refugee and vulnerable communities.
