At The World Urban Forum (WUF) Eleventh Session in June 2022, hosted by our World Habitat Awards partner UN-Habitat, we presented Public Works Studio with their 2021 World Habitat Gold Award for their project, Housing Monitor. The project provides valuable community tools for equitable housing rights in Beirut.
The presentation was followed with an insightful discussion on the housing crisis in Lebanon and the wider Middle East and how community tools can make housing injustices visible even in complex environments.
It also featured a documentary where residents spoke of the realities of living in Beirut in 2022.
Elsewhere at the International Social Housing Festival (ISHF2022) in Helsinki we were delighted to co-host a Collaborative Housing Day with our Co-Habitat network partners and in a separate session
- we brought together experts from across Europe to discuss ‘Social Housing and Housing First as a solution to eradicate street homelessness’. Click here to watch the session in full
