Did you know?
- 884 Million people in the world do not have access to safe water
- 1.4 million children die every year as a result of diseases caused by unclean water and sanitation. That is 4000 deaths a day!
- Do you know how blessed you are to have a loo?
Unitywater invited Moreton Bay and Sunshine Coast teachers and their Year 7 art students to take part in a competition like no other. Instead of a canvas, students were provided with a porcelain loo to decorate as part of World Toilet Day, 2013.
World Toilet Day is observed annually on 19 November. This international day of action aims to break the taboo around toilets and draw attention to the global sanitation challenge. As the region’s water and sewerage supplier, Unitywater partnered with WaterAid to raise money and awareness for those living without adequate sanitation.
Year 7W will be attending the prize ceremony on 19 November at Mooloolaba’s Loo with a View. All the best 7W!
