International Tenants’ day 7 October, 2019
In May 22, 1986, the Board of the International Union of Tenants met in Paris and decided to designate the first Monday in October as the International Tenants’ Day.
THE INTERNATIONAL TENANTS’ DAY 7th October, 2019
This year the International Tenants’ Day, celebrated on the first Monday of October each year, coincides with the United Nations Special rapporteur’s launch in 2019 of “The Shift” http://www.unhousingrapp.org/the-shift and ” Push the film”. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k9Q4So4femM
The International Union of Tenants (IUT) has therefore chosen these themes together with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, https://www.un.org/sustainabledevelopment/sustainable-development-goals/ in particular goal number 11, Make cities inclusive, safe, resilient and sustainable https://www.un.org/sustainabledevelopment/cities/: as the recommended themes when Tenants celebrate the International Tenants’ Day around the world.
The IUT supports its members in making their own choice at a national or regional level as to which sub-themes they may want to promote.
