Urban October

Every year UN-Habitat and partners organize a month of activities, events and discussions around urban sustainability in October. This year, Urban October will begin with World Habitat Day on 1 October and end with World Cities Day on 31 October. The theme for World Habitat Day is Municipal Solid Waste Management, and for World Cities Day is Building Sustainable and Resilient Cities.

Urban October comes shortly after the first review of Sustainable Development Goal 11 on Sustainable Cities and Communities at the High Level Political Forum in New York. We encourage local, regional and national authorities and partners to organize activities highlighting how to make cities and human settlements inclusive, safe, resilient and sustainable.
