Call for nomination for UN-Habitat Scroll of Honour 2024

Initiated in 1989, the UN-Habitat Scroll of Honour Award recognizes individuals and institutions that have made outstanding contributions in the field of urban development, including improvement of the quality of urban life and provision of adequate, affordable, and accessible housing for all.

In selecting the winners, UN-Habitat will consider best practices, initiatives, and innovative solutions contributing to the achievement of Sustainable Development Goal 11 on sustainable cities and communities. Special attention will be given to how initiatives, practices, or individuals align with the topic of World Habitat Day 2024 of “Engaging youth
to create a better urban future”.

Nominations for the award should come from third parties only (no self-nominations) before the deadline of 17 May 2024.

For over 30 years, the award has recognized 192 initiatives from individuals or entities worldwide. Previous winners include Fukuoka city in Japan, French firm Veolia Environment, Rwanda’s capital city Kigali, Habitat for Humanity International, the URBAN Intergroup at the European Parliament, and Australian non-profit Wintringham Specialist Aged Care.

The Executive Director of UN-Habitat will select up to five winners following recommendations by a panel of experts and leaders in sustainable urbanization. The winners will receive the UN-Habitat Scroll of Honour Award – a plaque engraved with the winner’s name – at the global celebration of World Habitat Day in Querétaro City, Mexico, on 7 October 2024.

In selecting the winners, UN-Habitat will consider best practices, initiatives, and innovative solutions contributing to the achievement of Sustainable Development Goal 11 on sustainable cities and communities.
