Leicestershire, UK, 10 January 2018 | Published in Urban, Social

Outstanding housing projects that have made a huge impact on local communities are invited to enter the World Habitat Awards 2018. The awards – which are now open for entry – are run jointly by Housing Europe member, World Habitat and UN-Habitat, highlighting the very best housing projects from across the world.

David Ireland, Director of World Habitat, the Awards’ funders and co-ordinators said: “These awards are a great opportunity for you and your project to receive the recognition you deserve. We are not only looking for outstanding housing solutions but also where good housing is having a wider impact, on health, on energy or improved community cohesion. Recent winners from the past few years have included projects which have had a significant impact on people’s lives by tackling topics as wide-ranging as natural disasters and chronic homelessness.”

David continues: “Being a finalist or winner will bring you international recognition for your innovative work, 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 World Habitat.”

All housing projects which demonstrate the best in practical, innovative and sustainable solutions to current housing needs are invited to submit their entries via the World Habitat Awards website Entries must be received by 31 March 2018.

* The World Habitat Awards established in 1985 are the world’s leading housing awards. They are run with support from UN-Habitat. The two winners receive £10,000 and international peer exchange activities to inspire, showcase and transfer world-beating ideas.
