World Habitat Day Special Art Project -
“MANY THANKS”
Let’s express “Thank You”
to the people working
for our community

Think about where you live and the places around you, who has helped you recently? Perhaps your teacher, neighbour, carer or doctor? In this challenging time of COVID-19, many people are working hard to protect our lives. At UN-Habitat we are supporting people’s efforts around the world to make our cities and towns better places to live.

Every year on the first Monday of October we join together to celebrate World Habitat Day and think about how we can create towns, cities and communities that are safer, healthier and more inclusive for all. For World Habitat Day 2020,
we want you to express “Thank You” to the people that help you most in your community through drawing, painting or sketching whatever you feel.

We look forward to your participation!
