We need to push ecological sanitation - Swiss Sustainability Prize

Dear all
One of our cewas-ians needs your support to win a Swiss Sustainability Prize (Prix eco Swisscanto.
She needs a few more likes in order to win the first prize of 15'000 CHF to support her work. See her request below (Deadline is tomorrow Wednesday 04.03.15 - so please be fast B)):

Please click on this Facebook link ( http://goo.gl/Rrr1pi ) and 'Like' the photo. Here's why:

Clean sanitation is not accessible for 2.5 billion people worldwide. More people die from water born diseases than Aids, malaria, and measles combined. The MoSan - Mobile Sanitation concept offers an elegant solution. If it is one of the two "most Liked" photos, then it could win the 'Swiss Sustainability Prize' category "Future" and win funding for scaling and implementation!

If you support ecological sanitation, then please :

1) Click on this link , and 'Like' the photo to add your vote.

2) Share this post.

Thanks so much!

Re: We need to push ecological sanitation - Swiss Sustainability Prize

Dear Dorothee,

thanks so much for your support and everyone who voted for MoSan on the Swiss Sustainability Prize. Unfortunately the MoSan solution did not make it to the finals. But there are still great news: just recently it received the Social Design Award from Hans-Sauer Foundation in Germany!
www.hanssauerstiftung.de/news/mosan-und-...ns-sauer-award-2015/ (in German)
All finalists here: hanssaueraward2015.com/finalists/

While attending this award I had to realize that still many people are not aware of the global lack of access to sanitation. Attending the "social design elevation days" during the Munich Creative Business Week it was my mission to change this! By talking about sanitation and promoting the MoSan concept I hope to raise awareness in the creative scene!

Thanks again and all the best,
MoSan - Mobile Sanitation
