Applications are open for World Habitat Awards 2021. Moreover, World Habitat Awards recognize and highlight innovative, outstanding and sometimes revolutionary housing ideas, projects and programmes from across the world.
More than 250 outstanding World Habitat Awards projects have been recognized over the years, demonstrating substantial, lasting improvements in living conditions. Trophies are also presented to the Gold Award winning projects and travel and accommodation costs are met for one representative of each project to attend the awards ceremony.
As well as international recognition, a prize of £10,000 is made to each of the two Gold Award-winning projects.
The World Habitat Awards are presented each year in partnership with the United Nations Human Settlements Programme (UN-Habitat). Historically the awards were presented on World Habitat Day, which is organised in October each year by UN-Habitat.
Basically, the Awards are still presented each year at a major UN-Habitat event, providing opportunities for international exposure, networking and dissemination of the award-winning approaches.
The Awards are open to all individuals, organizations or governments who have addressed housing challenges. World Habitat encourages entries from all over the world as the World Habitat Award is given to projects from the global North as well as the South that provide practical and innovative housing solutions.
