Urban October 2022

Urban October was developed to raise awareness, promote participation, generate knowledge, and engage the international community in creating a better urban future. Every October UN-Habitat, the United Nations agency for cities and towns, and partners organize a month of activities, events, and discussions on urban sustainability. Urban October is an opportunity for people around the world to join the conversation about the challenges and opportunities created by the fast pace of change in our cities and towns. National and local governments, universities, non-governmental organizations (NGOs), communities, and other stakeholders in sustainable urbanization are encouraged to hold or participate in activities, events, and discussions. Urban October begins with World Habitat Day at the start of the month and ends with World Cities Day on 31 October. Activities to mark Urban October take place around the world on these specific days and throughout the month. Different cities across the world host the global observances of World Habitat Day and World Cities Day each year. Since 2020, the global observance events have been held in a hybrid virtual/in-person format.
