Roca supports World Toilet Day

05 Nov, 14

Presentations to take place at Roca London Gallery

Roca and its We are Water Foundation will be marking World Toilet on November 19, 2014 in the Rethinking Sanitation event at the Roca London Gallery.

The aim of World Toilet Day aims to draw attention to the fact that 2.5billion people don’t have access to toilets and break the taboo of discussing sanitation.

The event will include three presentations focused on the need for improved sanitation. Loughborough University will be discussing the Reinvent the Toilet Challenge, which is organised by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. The Foundation has awarded grants to 16 researchers, including Loughborough University.

In addition, the event will also feature presentations from  LooWatt, an off the grid, energy-generating luxury WC system and Milan-based Fare Architects, founder of BUILDaCHANGE, a non-profit organisation that created the Zero project to improve sanitation in developing countries.

Re-thinking Sanitation takes place from 6.30-8.30pm.
