World Toilet Day 2013

As of this year World Toilet Day (19th November) has been acknowledged official world day by the United Nations

18.11.2013 |WECF

Since this year, World Toilet Day (19th November) has been acknowledged official world day by the United Nations. This day aims to set a sign for better sanitation worldwide and to support co-operation between all relevant actors in the field of sanitation.

The actions prepared by member organizations of the German WASH network, of which WECF Germany is one are helping to make visible issues in this sector for the public, to convince political decision-makers of the existential importance of this topic and to break the toilet taboo. For the member-organizations of the WASH-network this first official World Toilet Day is a cogent occasion to start actions in various German cities.
