7TH OCTOBER: WORLD HABITAT DAY

Annually, every first Monday in October is a day chosen by the United Nations as the World Habitat Day so as to take a deep look into the state of towns and cities all over the world. It is a day that showcases the importance of individuals in reducing the amount of waste produced and to also see ways to make valuable use of wastes.

World Habitat Day is very important to our existence as human beings; it is a day that reminds the world that everyone is entitled and also has a basic right to adequate shelter. The day specializes in informing people of their responsibility in shaping the future of their natural home and environment which are the cities and towns.

The 2019 theme for World Habitat Day is “Frontier Technologies as an innovative tool to transform waste to wealth”. The purpose of this year’s celebration is to explore the importance of Technology in waste management so as to build safe, inclusive and resilient cities in the entire world. Frontier technologies will be harnessed to achieve sustainable waste management.

                     

Peace and Conflict Resolution Resource Centre (PEACrEc) on this World Habitat Day encourage all individuals to be involved in this movement for waste management across this world; we believe that proper waste management will make our environment healthy and peaceable and this will cause improvement economically, socially and politically.
