Welcome to World Habitat
World Habitat works for world where everyone has a safe and secure home in a successful community. We want to make housing, not an investment, or a dream, but a basic right for everyone.
- – generate great ideas and identify best housing practice from around the world
- – transfer those ideas and practices to where they are needed most
- – develop and cultivate ideas so they benefit people who need them
The World Habitat Awards – organised in partnership with UN-Habitat – recognise and highlight innovative, outstanding and sometimes revolutionary housing ideas, projects and programmes from across the world.
Through our work on Community-Led Housing and Homelessness, our peer exchanges and networks, we bring people and ideas together – from major global institutions and national governments to grass-roots organisations and local communities.
