World Habitat Awards

The World Habitat Awards were established in 1985 by the Building and Social Housing Foundation as part of its contribution to the United Nations International Year of Shelter for the Homeless. Two awards are given annually to projects that provide practical and innovative solutions to current housing needs and problems, from the global South as well as the North. Every year an award of £10,000 is presented to each of the two winners at the annual United Nations global celebration of World Habitat Day.
Projects & approaches are sought that…
  • Demonstrate practical, innovative and sustainable solutions to current housing issues faced by countries of the global South as well as the North.
  • Can be transferred or adapted for use as appropriate.
  • View the term habitat from a broad perspective and bring other benefits as well, such as energy or water saving, income generation, social inclusion, community and individual empowerment, capacity building or education.
