World Habitat Day: 2 October 2018

Tue 02/10/18

In 1985 the United Nations designated the first Monday of October every year as World Habitat Day. The idea is to reflect on the state of our towns and cities and the basic right of all to adequate shelter. It is also intended to remind the world of its collective responsibility for the future of the human habitat.

The theme for 2017 was "Housing Policies: Affordable Homes."

The 2018 theme for World Habitat Day has not yet been announced.

More information about World Habitat Day can be found on the UN Habitat's website.
