World Habitat Day

The United Nations and Habitat for Humanity want the world to make affordable, sustainable housing a priority on World Habitat Day.

'World Habitat Day provides an excellent opportunity to highlight key human settlements issues. We would like to thank all our partners who in past years have organized awareness raising activities on the day and have described the celebrations that took place around the world in 2008 in this report. This year, we again call on our partners in central government, local government, civil society the private sector and the media to take part in organizing activities to raise awareness and stimulate debate on the important theme of Planning our Urban Future.'

There are a number of things you can do to support the event, like joining Kenny Rogers and his family (pictured) to take part in the photo petition.
