Our World Habitat Awards recognise and highlight innovative, outstanding and sometimes revolutionary housing ideas, projects and programmes from across the world.

More than 360 outstanding World Habitat Awards projects have been recognised over the years, demonstrating substantial, lasting improvements in living conditions.

Each year two winners receive £10,000 each and a trophy, presented at a global UN-Habitat event.



On Thursday 22 February 2024 we held the 2024 World Habitat Awards Winners Celebration.  We heard from UN Habitat and award-winning housing champions from across the world as they shared their stories with us. The video of the first hour, with presentations on retrofitting, housing rightshomes for rural communities, affordable student housingemergency housingearly weather warning systems, and cohousing communities is available to watch on our YouTube channel.

Find out about all eight finalists on the winners’ pages or read the press releases.
