European Responsible Housing Awards

by | Dec 16, 2021

Since 2014, Housing Europe and the International Union of Tenants (IUT) organize an European competition for affordable housing providers where they can show the best practices.

An international jury selects the best entries in different categories. During the International Social Housing Festival 2022 in Helsinki (Finland), taking place from 14 – 17 June 2022, the winning organisations will be awarded with the Responsible Housing Award. More information can be found on the website of the European Responsible Housing Initiative.

The applications for Awards 2022 are open to the social and affordable housing sector and to the hybrid sector (public + private). Deadline for submissions is officially 31 December 2021, but might be extended. Information on the possible extension will follow soon.

Call to all EFL members: please participate at this competition and show your best practices to the international housing community!
