International Tenants’ Day

The International Tenants’ day takes place on the first Monday of October every year

International Tenants’  Day

Background to the International Tenants´ Day:
In May 22, 1986, the Council of the International Union of Tenants met in Paris and a decision was made to designate the first Monday in October as the “International Tenant´s  Day.”
The IUT announces a theme each year but tenant organisations are of course free to chose their own topic/theme for this day.

UN World Habitat Day
The date chosen by the IUT Council was made with the background of the UN resolution taken in December 1985, by the UN General Assembly, to designate the first day of October every year as the World Habitat Day.
The World Habitat day was first celebrated in October 1986.
