World City Day

The United Nations has designated every 31st of October as World Cities Day. The Day is  expected to greatly promote the international community's interest in global urbanization, push  forward cooperation among countries in meeting opportunities and addressing challenges of  urbanization, and contributing to sustainable urban development around the world.

The general theme of World Cities Day is Better City, Better Life, while each year a different sub-theme is selected, to either promote successes of urbanization, or address specific challenges resulting from urbanization.

This year, the United Nations has selected the theme Innovative Governance, Open Cities to highlight the important role of urbanization as a source of global development and social inclusion.
