World Toilet Day 2021
18 / 11 / 2021

Dear colleagues,

We would like to remind and encourage WASH partners and coordination platforms to engage in World Toilet Day tomorrow. World Toilet Day celebrates toilets and raises awareness of the 3.6 billion people living without access to safely managed sanitation. It is about taking action to tackle the global sanitation crisis and achieve Sustainable Development Goal 6: water and sanitation for all by 2030. At the rate at which sanitation coverage is increasing, we will need to quadruple efforts in order to achieve SDG target 6.2.

This year theme is “valuing toilets”, drawing attention to the fact that toilets – and the sanitation systems that support them – are underfunded, poorly managed or neglected in many parts of the world, with devastating consequences for the poorest and most marginalized communities.

Your participation in World Toilet Day 2021 will help make the campaign a global success. Please play your part by:

  1. Using World Toilet Day social media assets to promote the campaign to your networks (#WorldToiletDay)
  2. Printing and displaying the poster in ArabicChineseHindiEnglishFrenchPortugueseRussianSpanish and Swahili.
  3. Using the factsheet to inform your messaging around the campaign ArabicChineseHindiEnglishFrenchPortugueseRussianSpanish and Swahili.
  4. Adding the World Toilet Day logo to your email signature by downloading the attached file, going to settings on your outlook> email settings> attach photo> upload. 
  5. Organizing virtual events, or physical events where safe and permitted.
  6. Engaging with decision-makers on the issues raised by the campaign.


Resources are available in Arabic, Chinese, Hindi, English, French, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish and Swahili on the World Toilet Day website and this Trello board

Also, kindly watch and share UN Waters 60 second film – Who cares about toilets? – about the toilet crisis and what needs to be done.


Please get involved through campaigns and events at the country level - feel free to share any country-level initiative, story related to WTD directly through Twitter and social – tag us @WashClusterglob, and use these hashtags #WorldToiletDay.  

Best regards,
