$1 MILLION (Prize amount to be confirmed. Announcement expected for next year)
Homelessness is defined as living in housing that is below the minimum standard or lacks secure tenure. People can be categorized as homeless if they are: living on the streets (primary homelessness); moving between temporary shelters, including houses of friends, family and emergency accommodation (secondary homelessness); living in private boarding houses without a private bathroom or security of tenure (tertiary homelessness).
There are 100 million people worldwide that are considered primary homeless according to recent UN survey. This shameful situation must terminate through a global effort that addresses the issue from the causes to the effects with policies, actions and plans to face and solve the problem on a permanent basis.
This competitions calls for proposals of different types, from social, technological, political, economical that can face the problem and solve it on a global basis while facing it locally with proper methods that can be different.
