World Habitat Day 

People in many regions travel to cities and villages to improve their lives by owning their own homes avoiding dangers, and providing all kinds of facilities and services necessary for their survival. It is therefore important that every people owns their own home to ensure their survival and has all the facilities available in towns or villages.

Every nation is accustomed to gathering a great deal of knowledge to know how to build a suitable home so that people can lead a better life. Today many slums are built in many cities and communities because people are unable to own their homes to survive in a better environment. Slums are being built all over India, and many people are used to living there to satisfy the basic needs of individuals and to survive in the natural environment.

World Habitat Day is celebrated in many countries around the world, including Angola, China, India, Mexico, Poland, Uganda, and the United States. Various activities are organized worldwide to study the problems of rapid urbanization and its impact on the environment and human poverty. Activities may include award ceremonies, including the Habitat Scroll of Honor Award.
