Everyone living in this world has the right to have a place called home. But some natural and human activities like conflict, persecution, violence, and climate disasters have displaced more than 100 million people. Many people still need to get the basic human needs and facilities. Due to these reasons, many people seek shelter or a place to live, even in low living conditions. They do not even get basic health facilities and hygiene, which can cause health issues. They have no safety facilities or protection against heat, dampness, rain, cold or wind. People live in temporary settlements and can live for decades in these camps or settlements.
Holcim, in partnership with the Norman Foster Foundation, aims to build for the betterment of people and the planet. They are trying to create a model for comfortable, the Essential Homes Research Project, which should be durable and housing for the displaced people. In this partnership, the Foster Foundation designed required housing to provide comfort, safety and betterment for displaced people who can live in temporary camps for over twenty years. Holcim is providing innovative and sustainable ideas and solutions from ECOPact, to make sustainable building available for everyone. This UK scholarship program will support young leaders making an impact in societies and providing housing facilities to deserving people, which will save those people from many health issues.
Summit duration: 2 – 5 October
