Designated by the United Nations General Assembly, World Cities Day aims to promote the international community’s interest in global urbanization, push forward cooperation among countries to address the challenges of urbanization, and contribute to sustainable urban development around the world.
While the general theme of World Cities Day is “Better City, Better Life,” each year focuses on a different sub-theme. Sub-themes address either the successes of urbanization, or the specific challenges resulting from urbanization.
This year, the United Nations has selected the theme “Changing the world: innovations and better life for future generations” to discuss how urbanization can be used to achieve sustainable development.
