Join us in celebrating innovative housing projects that address the climate emergency, homelessness prevention and emergency housing. This online event – to celebrate the winners of the 2020 World Habitat Awards (run in partnership between World Habitat and UN-Habitat) and the Outstanding Contribution to Housing Award – will provide an opportunity to discover and analyse the processes, lessons and solutions to three of the biggest housing challenges, from three remarkable organisations. The event will feature the two World Habitat Award Gold winners: > Newcastle City Council, UK – which has developed a ground-breaking, partnership approach to tackle homelessness preventing around 24,000 households from becoming homeless. > The Aga Khan Agency for Habitat, Pakistan – which has worked on the frontlines of the climate emergency to empower rural indigenous communities to integrate their local knowledge with key technological climate adaptation tools. Also featured will be the winners of the Outstanding Contribution to Housing Award – presented by World Habitat for the first time – which recognises the work of youth-led organisation TECHO, who have provided emergency housing to millions of people in 18 countries across Latin America and the Caribbean.
