World Habitat Day 2020: Projects & Activities

The United Nations designated the first Monday of October of every year as World Habitat Day to reflect on the state of our towns and cities, and on the basic right of all to adequate shelter. It also reminds us we all have the power and the responsibility to shape the future of our cities and towns.

Scroll down for home & school project ideas!

The theme for World Habitat Day 2020 is Housing For All: A better Urban Future.

“Having an adequate home is now, more than ever, a matter of life and death. As COVID-19 continues to spread, people have been told to stay at home, but this simple measure is impossible for people who do not have adequate housing.

At the same time, COVID-19 has reminded us that home is much more than just a roof. To make us feel safe and enable us to continue living, working and learning, a home needs to be secure, allow physical distancing and access for hygiene measures. It should also be located close to public green and open spaces, employment opportunities, health-care services, schools, childcare centres and other social facilities.

COVID-19 has spread in areas where people lack adequate housing and are faced with inequalities and poverty. Residents in these areas are also often not recognized by the authorities or protected and face the risk of being evicted and relocated, particularly in times of crisis.” – United Nations
