World Toilet Day in
Days to go:
World Toilet Day is an annual global observance intended to raise awareness about the importance of sanitation and adequate toilet facilities for all. By focusing on the need for better hygiene and access to clean water, World Toilet Day aims to combat the spread of diseases, malnutrition, and death resulting from poor sanitation. The event also seeks to promote innovations and investments that will lead to long-lasting improvements in sanitation and water services worldwide.
Established in 2001 by the World Toilet Organization, World Toilet Day was officially recognized by the United Nations General Assembly in 2013. In the European Union (EU), this observance day serves as a reminder that although EU citizens generally enjoy access to safe and clean toilets, much of the world still suffers from inadequate sanitation facilities. The EU has made significant efforts to address this global issue through various initiatives such as contributing to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) set by the United Nations. One of the SDGs, specifically Target 6.2, aims to achieve access to adequate and equitable sanitation and hygiene for all by 2030.
As a part of the annual World Toilet Day observance, EU countries host various events and activities to raise awareness about the importance of sanitation and to encourage further action from governments, NGOs, and citizens alike. Seminars, workshops, and public awareness campaigns are held across Europe to emphasize the importance of proper sanitation and engage stakeholders in finding solutions for the global sanitation crisis. By observing World Toilet Day, the European Union demonstrates its commitment to improving sanitation conditions and promoting a healthy environment for all. World Toilet Day takes place every year on November 19th, and the EU joins the global community in working towards making safe and clean toilets accessible to all.
