WORLD HABITAT DAY
“Come forth into the light of things, let nature be your teacher.”
These lines by William Wordsworth reflect on the significance of nature and its habitat. World Habitat Day is observed every year on the 4th of October, in many countries across the world to address the problem of rapid urbanisation and its impact on the environment and human poverty. This day is intended to remind the world that we all have the power and the responsibility to shape the future of our cities and towns. World Habitat Day was established in 1985 by the United Nations General Assembly through a Resolution to promote the idea that everyone deserves to live. The theme this year is “Accelerating Urban Action for a Carbon-Free World.” Every year a new theme is initiated to promote sustainable development and environment for the survival of all. The main agenda is to spread awareness about depleting resources and steps to protect our habitat. Every year Habitat for Humanity joins people around the world to rededicate ourselves to remove barriers to opportunity, health, and success. It aims to remind people that the future of our planet depends on national, regional and local governments, communities working together to create sustainable, carbon neutral inclusive cities and towns.
