World Habitat Day 2017

World Habitat Day has been marked as the first Monday of October every year by the United Nations since 1985. The purpose of such a distinct day was given to reflect the state of our towns and cities and the basic right of all to adequate shelter.

This is also a day to significantly remind the world that we all have the power and the responsibility to shape the future of our cities and towns.

The theme for this year World Habitat Day 2017 scheduled for the 2nd of October is titled as “Housing Policies: Affordable Homes”

Each year, World Habitat Day takes on a new theme to promote sustainable development policies that ensure adequate shelter for all. These themes often promote one of UN-Habitat’s focal areas such as:

  • Inclusive housing and social services
  • A safe and healthy living environment for all — with particular consideration for children, youth, women, elderly and disabled
  • Affordable and sustainable transport and energy
  • Promotion, protection, and restoration of green urban spaces
  • Safe and clean drinking water and sanitation
