World Cities Day
31 October 2020| Free
31 October is World Cities Day, there is an overarching theme of Better City, Better Life, and Each year a different sub-theme is selected, to either promote successes of urbanisation, or address specific challenges resulting from urbanisation. The aim of the day is to focus the international community’s attention on urbanisation as a central issue for development and to encourage cooperation among countries in meeting opportunities and addressing urban challenges towards sustainable development.
Last years theme was “Changing the World: innovations and better life for future generations”
The sub-theme for 2020 is “Valuing our communities and cities.”
This is day is a great opportunity for schools on the Global Citizenship Travel theme who are learning about the goals and objectives of SDG 11 – Cities and Communities
