World Habitat Housing Projects and Programmes awards recognizes and highlights, outstanding and revolutionary housing ideas, from across the world.
World Habitat finds, supports, shares and celebrates those ideas and actions that have an overwhelmingly positive impact on individuals, families and communities. The goal is to make housing, not an investment, or a dream, but a basic right for everyone.
Through peer exchanges and networks, World Habitat brings people and ideas together – from major global institutions and national governments to grass-roots organisations and local communities.
World Habitat champions those communities that take control of solving their own housing needs.
Currently they have initiated and are now working with ten cities to end street homelessness through the European End Street Homelessness Campaign.
More than 250 outstanding World Habitat Awards projects have been recognized over the years, demonstrating substantial, lasting improvements in living conditions.
