The LafargeHolcim Foundation relies on the support of local representatives in more than 90 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. In 2016 a series of three workshops was held: Zurich, Switzerland; Singapore; and Bogotá, Colombia were chosen as the host cities.
The 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.
