Three days to raise awareness

OLI organized the World Toilet Day between the 19th and 21st of November. The objective of the event was to show a dramatic reality that is lived all over the world, but which too often, and for various reasons, goes unnoticed to many of us.

Did you know that of the world’s seven billion people, 2.4 billion people do not have adequate sanitation? And because of that a child dies every 2.5 minutes? And did you know that 1 billion people still relieve themselves in the open?

It was these and many other messages that OLI collaborators made a point to disclose. The initiative took place daily from 10:00 to 22:00 at the Glicínias Plaza Shopping Center in Aveiro and relied on the collaboration of OLI employees. The event was a success with over a thousand people visiting the OLI exhibition.
