Urban October
A month focused the world's rapidly growing cities and the challenges of the 21st century
The Story

Urban October is an opportunity for everyone to be part of the conversation about the challenges and opportunities created by the fast rate of change in our cities and towns. Each October, everyone interested in sustainable urbanization from national and local governments to universities, NGOs, and communities is encouraged to hold or participate in activities, events, and discussions. It begins with World Habitat Day on the first Monday of the month and ends with World Cities Day on 31 October. Throughout the month this page and Archnet social media will highlight themes relating to the themes of Urban October. Check back for changes!
