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.


This year's World Habitat Awards will be presented to 'Champlain Housing Trust - Community Land Trust Innovation', USA and 'Preventing Typhoon Damage to Housing', Central Viet Nam at the United Nations global celebration of World Habitat Day in Luanda, Angola on Monday 6th October 2008.

 

The United Nations chose the theme of Harmonious Cities for 2008 to raise awareness about the problems of rapid urbanization, its impact on the environment, the growth of slums, and the urbanisation of poverty as more and more people teem into towns and cities looking for a better life.

When:  06 October 2008

Time:  All day!

Where:  Around the world!
