World Toilet Day is a day to raise awareness and inspire action to tackle the global sanitation crisis – a topic often neglected and shrouded in taboos. Today, 2.4 billion people are struggling to stay well, keep their children alive and work their way to a better future – all for the want of a toilet.
In 2013, the United Nations General Assembly officially designated November 19 as World Toilet Day. World Toilet Day is coordinated by UN-Water in collaboration with governments and partners.
This picture show the World Toilet Day Campaign in the Place des Nations, Geneva on 19 November 2018. They were giving out their T-shirts which read “THIS IS A T-SHIT” and their banners read “SIT DOWN IF YOU WANT TO END POVERTY”. These and other resources can be downloaded from here.
Sustainable Development Goal 6 is to ensure access to water and sanitation for all by 2030.
