World Habitat Awards

The annual World Habitat Awards are a great way of identifying and celebrating good practice in housing worldwide and entries are now open for the 2015/16 competition.

David Ireland, Director of BSHF, the Awards’ funders and co-ordinators said: “Previous winners have included projects which really demonstrate the wider benefits of good housing, for example health improvements, energy savings or improved community cohesion. Recent winners have included projects which have had a significant impact on people’s lives by tackling topics as wide-ranging as chronic homelessness and the regeneration of historic cities.”

“We run the Awards in partnership with UN-Habitat and this brings clear benefits for the winners. As well as this high profile, international recognition for their innovative practices, winning projects also receive a cash prize of £10,000, a trophy and have the opportunity to transfer their award-winning approach through peer-exchange activities sponsored by BSHF.”

Housing projects which demonstrate practical, innovative and sustainable solutions to current housing needs are invited to submit their entries via the World Habitat Awards website www.worldhabitatawards.org.

Entries must be received by 30 April 2015.
