World Habitat Day Panel Event

Primary tabs

The United Nations has designated the first Monday in October as annual World Habitat Day. On this day, we reaffirm that adequate shelter is a basic human right and we focus on the conditions of cities and towns around the world. We also use this day to remind the world of its collective responsibility for the future of the human habitat.

On October 5, 2009, please join us in support of World Habitat Day, as we raise our voices and declare that the lack of decent, affordable housing is unacceptable. The College of Architecture at Georgia Tech and Habitat for Humanity International will co-host a panel event: Housing after the Crash...Creating Better Options for our Future in the Reinsch-Pierce Family Auditorium.

Dan Immergluck, Associate Professor of City and Regional Planning at Georgia Tech
