Submitted projects are evaluated in three phases:
2) Evaluation by a Lead Judge and
(3) Jury Panel & Public Voting.
In phase one (eligibility), all applications will be reviewed by the internal team at Coliving Awards to make sure that all criteria are being met.
After their team reviews the applications for eligibility, lead judges will evaluate all eligible presentations from his / her own category for phase two. According to the criteria checklist and required answers to respective questions, lead judges will give a score for each application, which will result in the selection of maximum 4 finalists and 1 or more honorable mentions.
Further evaluation by the whole jury panel will also be based on the set criteria and respective questions, and our wider jury panel will be responsible for nominating the winners of each category, alongside the public vote and the previous scores from each jury member. The public vote will be processed on LinkedIn, giving the voice to our followers and wider community.
The final result is calculated as follows: the lead judge has 35% ruling, followed by 35% ruling from audience LinkedIn voting and 30% ruling from industry relevance stance by the jury panel. The winners will be exposed and awarded during the Coliving Awards ceremony.
Coliving Awards 2021
Looking back at the first edition
In 2021 Coliving Awards launched its first edition. Hosted in partnership with leading shared living experts and organisations, the Coliving Awards 2021 was the first ceremony dedicated to highlighting key innovators, actors and ideas that are shaping the industry.
Coliving Awards partnered up with Coliving Insights to release a Special Edition to showcase the contributors of Coliving Awards 2021.
The 2021 edition showcased the lead judges, jury panel, award winners and all the partners and sponsors who contributed to the first ever awards ceremony dedicated to the sector.
As one of the highlight Coliving Insights publications of 2021, this edition was a chance for all those involved in the Coliving Awards to get additional visibility and recognition in front of Coliving Insights’ fast-growing and hyper-niche audience.
Conscious Coliving & Coliving Awards 2021
The Community Facilitation Handbook v1.0 is a collaborative initiative between Art of Co and Conscious Coliving. The Handbook shares community facilitation best practices and resources for the wider ecosystem, with the aim to help foster authentic connection and communal experiences within shared living spaces. 2021 Lead Judge, Connor Moore, shared:
“While many publications, books, and reports have been written on how to best form communities, The Community Facilitation Handbook is the most comprehensive resource specifically catering to the creation of communities… For me, defining and refining the community facilitation process is arguably the most important element for the future growth and success of the global coliving movement. With this in mind, I believe the first edition of The Community Facilitation Handbook will be a foundational resource for the facilitation of strong and impactful communities around the world.”
The Conscious Coliving Manifesto v3.0 (The Manifesto) is an open-source coliving framework created by the industry for the industry. The Manifesto serves as a guide for a new living paradigm in which people are consciously connected to self, others and nature.
Since 2018, we have been collaborating with operators, developers, investors, thought leaders and residents to develop a deeper and more holistic vision for coliving, one that can support spaces in fulfilling their full potential.
The three core aspects of wellbeing, community and sustainability are supported by the four pillars – aligned policy and regulation, a sustainability financial model, supportive spatial design and wise management and operations – to create thriving communities.
