World Toilet Day 2016 - 19 November 2016, let's get ready for it (theme is toilets and jobs)

Dear colleagues,

In just a month, World Toilet Day will be celebrated around the world and your stories can help people learn more about sanitation and get inspired to take action. Thanks to many of you who have already contributed with content to the newly relaunched website . For those who have more relevant reports, videos, photos and articles that you would like to feature, please send them to us.

Please feel free to also use the posters, fact sheet, logos and memes (available in six languages) for activities on World Toilet Day and do upload your event on the world map for promotion and finding synergies with others.

Last year our social media voice reached nearly 700 million people. Can we reach even more people this year? We certainly hope so. This Social Media Guidance includes suggested messages and visuals. The material is currently being translated into Spanish, French and Portuguese so let us know if you need other languages.

We hope you will find the material and information useful. Please feel free to distribute them throughout your networks and let us know if we can assist you in view of World Toilet Day.

All the best,

Anna

Dear Anna,

Thanks for your post.
I am curious how you determined that

Last year our social media voice reached nearly 700 million people.

?
Must we pretty hard to estimate this, how did you do it?

Also, every year around this time I invite people to help improve the Wikipedia article on World Toilet Day:

en.wikipedia.org/wiki/World_Toilet_Day

Every year, the page views show a spike of viewers of this page on 19 November. I think the page can still be expanded and improved a lot! Would you like to help?

If anyone has questions on how to edit Wikipedia pages, I can help. Or you can also use the article's talk page to discuss improvements, see here:
en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Talk:World_Toilet_Day

See discussion we had about this last year here:
