The 20th World Habitat Day Children’s Drawing Contest: “Healthy People, Healthy Environment and Healthy Communities”
Call for Submissions

UN-Habitat has been supporting people’s efforts in making the cities/towns/villages a better place to live.

Over the past months, you have heard and read a lot about health, and about how to protect yourself, your family and your friends from diseases.

You have also heard and read about climate change, and how it impacts the safety of the places where we live.
