PPP E2 - World Toilet Day 2020

In this episode we will discuss World Toilet Day. Although many people’s first reaction would be to find it humorous that such a day even exists, it is important to take into consideration that there are millions of people around the globe who do not have access to proper sanitation. Imagine not having the luxury of a properly functioning toilet. The mere thought certainly creates a whole new perspective, doesn’t it? The objective of this conversation is to determine what World Toilet Day is, why it came into existence, and in what way it can contribute to addressing both the global sanitation crisis and sustainable development in general.
