World Toilet day 2013

The German WASH Network celebrates the 1st  World Toilet Days in Germany

Since World Toilet Day 2013 (19th November) has been acknowledged official world day by the United Nations. This day aimed 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 helped 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 was a cogent occasion to start actions in various German cities.
