mr toilet dvd cover 1

To a stranger, he’s a guy obsessed with toilets, but to those who know him, he’s “Mr. Toilet,” a crusader for global sanitation. Born in the Singapore slums, Jack Sim knows firsthand the agonies of not having a proper loo. Now he’s dedicating his life to a crisis no one dares talk about. He founded the World Toilet Organization and spent the last 13 years lobbying 193 countries to raise awareness for proper sanitation. Now he is plunged into his biggest challenge yet when asked to secure 6 million toilets for the “Clean India” initiative.

The film will be followed by a panel discussion with:

  • Carolien Van der Voorden, Head of Technical Support Unit, WSSCC
  • Sophie Aujean, EU Representative, WaterAid
  • Carlos Garriga, Project Manager, We Are Water
  • Moderated by: Carlos Jimenez, UNRIC
