After a year off, we are gearing-up for the best Glastonbury yet. The 2017 Festival was one for the record books; along with our wonderful water warriors, we managed to collect 35k signatures for our Water Fight petition, calling on the UK Government to put taps and toilets at the heart of its plans for schools around the world.
This year, we are tripling our water kiosks to 37 to support Glastonbury Festival’s new ban on the sale of single-use plastic drinks bottles, preventing over a million of them becoming harmful waste. Together, we can protect the environment while we change lives for good.
Clean water, decent toilets and good hygiene. Sound normal, right? But even now, millions of people do not have access to these simple human needs; because of who they are, how much money they have or where they live. Extreme poverty won’t end until everyone, everywhere has clean water, decent toilets and good hygiene.
Here at WaterAid we’re determined to make this happen within a generation – and we believe the best way to do it is by working with others. That’s why we’re part of an active global network of advisors, debate shapers, policy makers, engineers, campaigners and fundraisers. All of us here at WaterAid are working towards a common goal: getting water, toilets and hygiene to the millions of people still living without these basic human rights.
Without access to these human rights, people are denied an equal chance to be healthy, educated and financially secure. So with your help, we want to make clean water, decent toilets and good hygiene normal for everyone everywhere, within a generation. Together we can make real change happen, whether you come and refill your bottles at our kiosks across the site, support our campaign or share our work with your friends and family, we can help make sure no one has their access denied to clean water, decent toilets and good hygiene. In the meantime, keep in touch finding us on Facebook, following us on Twitter and Instagram or visiting wateraid.org. We are looking forward to seeing you in the green fields!
