Why should we want to talk about toilets, you may ask? Well, in 2020, around 3.5 BILLION people around the world did not have a safely managed toilet and nearly HALF A BILLION had no toilet at all!

Why are there so many people without one? Why should we care? What can be done about it? What could you do?

You’ll have to listen to my serious, yet entertaining talk!
