100 toilets in Brisbane CBD

Thursday, 20 November, 2008

Insanitation is an exhibition of 100 decorated toilets in the Brisbane CBD to mark the 8th annual World Toilet Day.

Toilets decorated by artists, companies, individuals and businesses will be displayed in Brisbane Square today to raise awareness about this issue.

Organised by two Master of Integrated Water Management students, Kristal Burry and Diane Cousineau, and supported by International WaterCentre and other organisations, Insanitation aims to educate the general public about the grim facts of deprivation, health and education due to lack of sanitation.

“If we wish to ‘make poverty history', if we want to help reduce childhood mortality, then sanitation is the place to start, for without water and sanitation, we cannot achieve these goals,” said Burry.

The Parliamentary Secretary for International Development Assistance, Bob McMullan, will speak about the federal government’s response to the sanitation crisis at the centre stage of Queen Street Mall.
