Toilet Talks

Dear all,

I am pleased to announce the launch of Toilet Talks!

Toilet Talks is a week-long virtual event (Nov 12-19) showcasing a series of short (3-5 min) audio stories relating to Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH), human rights, what 'leaving no one behind' means and the ‘social, economic and environmental consequences of inaction’ – the theme of World Toilet Day 2019 .

Access the website here and listen to a wide range of informative talks:

Posters advertising Toilet Talks (attached) are intended to be placed in public bathrooms at workplaces and academic institutions for the week preceding World Toilet Day on November 19th. Posters include a smartphone-readable barcode which links to the Toilet Talks website. The idea being to scan the posters and choose from a selection of Toilet Talks to listen to later on, or ‘in situ’!

Please share links to this online event using the social media links at the foot of the homepage. If you are in a position to print and put up the posters as well – then please do so - and thank you!

Thanks to the all the contributors and supporters who have shared a talk and helped spread the word about this project for World Toilet Day.

I hope you enjoy these Toilet Talks.

Best wishes,
