Urban October

Urban October is a month of exciting meetings, discussions and events focusing the world’s attention on urban
issues and sustainable development. Individuals, organizations, cities, communities, and governments at every
level are encouraged to take part in activities that highlight the challenges and solutions relating to cities, towns
and communities. Urban October starts with World Habitat Day and ends with World Cities Day. This year World
Habitat Day will open the month-long celebrations with a virtual event on Monday 4 October under the 2021 theme
Accelerating urban action for a carbon-free world. We will end the month with World Cities Day on 31 October
with the theme Adapting Cities for Climate Resilience. UN-Habitat invites everyone concerned with promoting
sustainable cities and communities to join in the celebration
