Urban October is an opportunity for everyone to be part of the conversation about the challenges and opportunities we face in the defense of our Human Rights related to Habitat.
The month begins with World Habitat Day on the first Monday of the month, 3 October 2022, with the theme Mind the Gap. Leave No One and Place Behind, will look at the problem of growing inequality and challenges in cities and human settlements.
The month ends with the World Right to the City Day on 31 October, with the theme Act Local to Go Global. We want to bring different partners and diverse stakeholders together to share their experiences and approaches to local action, what local action worked and what is needed to empower local and regional governments to create greener, more equitable and sustainable cities.
As every year, HIC and its members will organize activities as part of these global days to raise awareness of human rights related to habitat.
