Peer exchanges are carried out each year to the World Habitat Award-winning projects in order to encourage the dissemination of innovative housing practice around the world and to facilitate the transfer of knowledge and experience. Travel bursaries are made available by BSHF, enabling participants from a range of countries to attend.

The purpose of the exchanges is to provide a practical, in-depth understanding of the technical, social and financial aspects of each award-winning programme. Intensive site visits form a major part of the exchange, providing an opportunity for participants to meet with residents and others responsible for the programme’s success.

After each peer exchange we work with the hosts and participants to produce interactive reports or videos including information about the housing project or organisation we have visited, participants’ perspectives, photo galleries and additional resources. These reports are available to download and/or order via our Publications page.
