Annually the World Cities Day is celebrated on 31st October. Even though the events promoting the international community’s interest in global urbanization take place all over the world, every city has a chance to host the main celebration with the support of UN-HABITAT.
In different years the World Cities Day was hosted by Shanghai, Milan, Quito, Guangzhou and Liverpool. Your city has a chance to become a part of history and to host the celebration in 2019.
