The United Nations has designated the first Monday in October as World Habitat Day to focus attention on the state of human settlements and the basic right to adequate shelter for all. It is also intended to remind the world of its collective responsibility for the future of the human habitat. The theme of this year’s World Habitat Day is “Better City, Better Life.”
