World Toilet Day 22

Sanitation is hard to manage when it comes to ensuring access to it in areas featuring large movements of people fleeing violence or environmental crises. Plus all too often it becomes invisible to those who have had to leave their homes.

How is sanitation managed when conflict breaks out? How is access to sanitation ensured in refugee and displaced persons camps? How do refugees and displaced persons experience it? What about the communities hosting them? What kind of conflicts are triggered and need to be resolved? Are they the same in Europe as in other parts of the world? Do refugees and displaced persons face the same situation if they have been forced out by war, climate or other reasons?

 These are some of the questions we’re raising and which we’ll try to answer in the discussion we’re hosting on Thursday 17 November at the Roca Madrid Gallery. The guests include:

  • Javier Ruíz - CEO World Vision Spain
  • Sofia Arroyo -  Project Officer World Vision
  • José María Vera -  UNICEF Spain
  • Karmele Saez -  Project Manager Acnur
  • Emmanuel Zangako, Community Leader, Founder & Executive director at Youth Support Volunteer Organization.
  • Juan Jane Soma Boyong, Community Leader and Deputy Executive Director at Youth Support Volunteer Organization.
  • Prof. Carmen Parra, Chair-Holder, UNESCO Chair on Peace, Solidarity and Intercultural Dialogue.
  • Carlos Garriga-  Dir. We Are Water Foundation
