The Building and Social Housing Foundation (BSHF) is currently seeking entries for the World Habitat Awards 2010 competition.
Now in their 25th year, the World Habitat Awards seek to identify practical, innovative and sustainable solutions to current housing issues faced by countries of the Global South as well as the North, which are capable of being transferred or adapted for use elsewhere. The competition is open to all individuals and organisations, including central and local governments, NGOs, community-based groups, research organisations and the private sector.
Each year a panel of international judges assesses the projects entered for the competition and selects two winners. An award of £10,000 is presented to the winners at the annual United Nations global celebration of World Habitat Day.
Details of previous winning projects and finalists can be found on the World Habitat Awards website at www.worldhabitatawards.org.
Please note that Stage I entries must be received by 1st November 2010.
