All award winners (Bronze, Silver and Gold) are invited to join the World Habitat Awards (WHA) Network, consisting of a group of former winners and finalists of the competition since 1986. Every year, the new winners join the Network and every year it grows from strength to strength.

The World Habitat Awards Network fosters a vibrant community for current and past winners, enriching their projects through a dynamic program of: 

  • Knowledge exchange: Online and in-person meetings ignite collaboration, allowing members to share best practices and inspire each other. 
  • Partnership opportunities: Network members gain access to new funders, philanthropic organizations, and potential partners, propelling their projects forward. 
  • Global reach: Communications amplify the voices of the Network, showcasing their innovative solutions to a worldwide audience. 
  • Private collaboration: A dedicated LinkedIn group provides a secure space for members to explore synergies and forge valuable partnerships.
