ABOUT THE EVENT
The 6th International LafargeHolcim Forum for Sustainable Construction will be hosted by the American University in Cairo, Egypt, and take place from April 4 to 6, 2019.
It will be dedicated to the topic of “Re-materializing Construction”, and the format of the event will be similar to the previous symposiums. The Academic Committee of the LafargeHolcim Foundation is responsible for content, contributions and the outline of the Forum.
Keynote speeches, workshop presentations, topical excursions in the vicinity of Cairo and discussion sessions in plenary or workshop groups will focus on strategies to “re-materialize” construction by reducing consumption throughout the material cycle from extraction to processing, transport, installation, maintenance, and removal – contributing to a leaner industry: one with a smaller ecological footprint and not driven by the long-standing pretense of infinitely available raw materials.
LafargeHolcim Forums are public events. To register your interest in participating, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
