At World Habitat we do not take sides, other than with what works and what is good. We find, support, share and celebrate those ideas and actions that have an overwhelmingly positive impact on individuals, families and communities. We want to make housing, not an investment, or a dream, but a basic right for everyone.
Our 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 peer exchanges and our networks, we bring people and ideas together – from major global institutions and national governments to grass-roots organisations and local communities.
We champion those communities that take control of solving their own housing needs. We initiated and are now working with thirteen cities to end street homelessness through the European End Street Homelessness Campaign.
