World Cities Day 2022: Act Local to Go Global

World Cities Day brings Urban October to an end on 31 October each year and was first celebrated in 2014. As with World Habitat Day, a global observance is held in a different city each year and the day focuses on a specific theme. This year’s global observance is planned to take place on 31 October 2022 under the theme Act Local to Go Global. We want to bring different partners and diverse stakeholders together to share their experiences and approaches to local action, what local action worked and what is needed to empower local and regional governments to create greener, more equitable and sustainable cities.

Showcasing transformative approaches for women’s land rights

This Whose Land? webinar will showcase gender transformative approaches on women’s land rights.
