World Habitat Day 

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

The theme of this year’s World Habitat Day is ‘Planning our Urban Future'. For further information on the 2009 World Habitat Day celebrations, please click here.

 

*Note: The evaluation process for the 2009 cycle of the World Habitat Awards is currently underway and entrants will be notified of the results of Stage I by mid-August 2009.
