Mr. Toilet: The World’s #2 Man
November 26, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Open to educators and the general public!
Not having a place “to go” isn’t just an inconvenience; it’s a problem that impacts 2.4 billion people worldwide. In India alone, 200,000 children die each year from lack of safe sanitation, while women are regularly raped because they have to defecate in public spaces.
To strangers, Jack Sim is a guy obsessed with toilets, but to those who know him, he’s “Mr. Toilet,” a crusader for global sanitation. He founded the World Toilet Organization and has spent the last 13 years lobbying 193 countries to raise awareness about proper sanitation. He even successfully lobbied the United Nations to create World Toilet Day.
A 2019 feature-length film about Jack Sim and his work, Mr. Toilet: The World’s #2 Man, will be screened at SIFF Cinema Uptown on Tuesday, November 26th at 7 pm. Please join Global Classroom and SIFF with generous support from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation for this exclusive educator workshop with Jack Sim and filmmaker Lily Zepeda from 5:15-6:15 pm and then stay for the public screening of Mr. Toilet.
Includes light snacks, 4 free clock hours, and curriculum resource guide.
