Day of Action on 4 June: SDG 6 - Water and Sanitation for all!

*English subtitles are available in the video setup*

According to the World Health Organization (WHO), 60% of the world population lives without secure sanitation, which protects health and the environment. In line with the World Environment Day on 5 June and as a contribution to the European Sustainability Week, more than 75 Berlin pupils organised an “Actions-March” in Berlin’s governmental district and demanded a “Toiletised World”.

 

The Parliamentary State Secretary Dr. Maria Flachsbarth from the Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) appreciated the pupils’ efforts publicly– especially, because it is such a taboo issue.

 

Thanks to everyone who supported this event and contributed to its great success!

 

The event was initiated by pupils from the Anna-Essinger-Gemeinschaftsschule, the Gemein-schaftsschule on Campus Rütli and the Georg-von-Giesche-Schule, together with the GTO. The project is financially supported by the Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ), by the state office for developmental cooperation Berlin and Brot für die Welt. We also thank the supplier of washroom products, CWS-boco, who is a long-term supporter of projects of the GTO.
