Every year, the Global Platform for the Right to the City (GPR2C) celebrates Urban October, an opportunity to raise our voices about our struggles and initiatives and to join forces for a better world. In 2021, Urban October will kick-off on Monday, 4 October with World Habitat Day and end on Sunday, 31 October with World Day for the Right to the City. On this occasion, the GPR2C will launch a collective campaign to publish the thematic paper about the Right to the City and the COVID-19 pandemic, written by our consultant Eva Garcia Chueca, from CIDOB and supported by a Reference Group formed by different GPR2C members. More details will be shared soon.

Check out the collective campaign that we have prepared on “The impact of Covid-19 on the Right to the City”!
