October 24, 2015 marked the 70th anniversary of the Charter of the United Nations entering into force.  In Geneva, this important anniversary was commemorated with a public celebration at the Palais des Nations that was attended by  more than 19,000 visitors. We took the opportunity to launch this year’s World Toilet Day campaign and #BeAThinker initiative at the event.

We asked visitors to think about the 2.4 billion people who don’t use a toilet, and the nearly 1 billion who have to go in the open. To think about how we can overcome the sanitation crisis so that all of our global neighbours can have access to one of the world’s most critical inventions—the toilet.

Check out these photos from the event, and show you support on World Toilet Day by posing as a “Thinker” and sharing your photo!
