Urban Highlight

Urban themes have received full attention in the past weeks. The month of October was coined 'Urban October' by the United Nations, starting with World Habitat Day on 3 October and ending with World Cities Day on 31 October. The Habitat III Conference taking place in Quito from 17-20 October was also part of these happenings. The EUKN has organised an official side event and several other events at the Habitat III Conference. 


The EUKN Secretariat is working hard at the moment on organising multiple EUKN related events, including a Policy Lab and the yearly assembly meeting. On 10th and 11th of November, there is an EUKN seminar on the inclusion of migrants and refugees in Amsterdam.
