World Toilet Day is promoted annually by the United Nations on 19 November to raise awareness and inspire action about improving sanitation worldwide. World Toilet Day is part of the campaign for the world to reach Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 6, Global Goal 6, by 2030: ‘Ensure access to water and sanitation for all’, by making sure everyone has access to a safely-managed household toilet.
World Cities Day is on 31 October. The general theme of World Cities Day is ‘Better City, Better Life’, while each year a different sub-theme is selected, to either promote successes of urbanisation, or address specific challenges resulting from urbanisation.
