This year, World Habitat Day is calling attention to the issue of waste, wishing to change the discourse into a positive one, where waste is presented as an opportunity to bring about wealth and change in the communities and cities where we live.
UN-Habitat is calling for you to share your innovative solutions and best practices that transform waste to wealth. The objective is to collate the best solutions and innovative practices from around the world and present these at World Habitat Day for practitioners to take home and be inspired to replicate them.
In this context, new frontier technologies and innovative solutions can present important circular economy opportunities for cities and human settlements. Therefore, this year’s World Habitat Day, taking place 7 October, will be celebrated under the theme “Frontier technologies as innovative tools to transform waste to wealth”.
