Harmonious Cities

World Habitat Day 2008 was held on 6 October 2008, under the theme – Harmonious Cities. The United Nations chose the theme of Harmonious Cities for 2008 to raise awareness about the problems of rapid urbanization, its impact on the environment, the growth of slums, and the urbanisation of poverty as more and more people teem into towns and cities looking for a better life.

The main celebration was held in Luanda, Angola.
