Event Type: Observances
Event Name: World Toilet Day
Event Description: In July of this year, the General Assembly officially designated 19 November as World Toilet Day. Since sanitation is a priority MDG acceleration issue being spearheaded by the Deputy Secretary-General, UNICs are encouraged to work with country partners to promote the Day as appropriate for your national audiences.
UN Sponsor: United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF)
Activities: UNICEF will be organizing materials and a social media campaign on the theme of "No Access," using the hashtag #toilets4all. They are also running a Facebook campaign called "This is my toilet," which will invite families to send in photos of children standing in front of their toilets. UNICEF will prepare materials in Arabic, English, French and Spanish, as well as possibly Hindi and Bahasa Indonesia.
