We are looking for a young person to design an environmentally friendly toilet for World Toilet Day!

Challenge details

It's World Toilet Day on the 19th November and we want you to be involved!

We are encouraging people between the ages of 12-18 to create an environmentally friendly toilet.

If you need inspiration, think about compost toilets, at music festivals, the small flush button on most bathroom toilets or even a device where you don't need to use any paper!

All these ideas help the environment in their own little ways, and we want to hear from you how you think toilets can be even more economical.

Dont forget to think about:

  • What would the toilet look like?
  • Where would it be used? i.e. in the home, in public, at music festivals
  • How would it dispose of waste?
  • How much (approximately) would it cost to make?
  • What would you call your toilet design?

The Prize

The lucky winner will win a day shadowing Barbara Frost, WaterAid’s Chief Executive, with lunch to find out how an international charity works. Perfect for anyone interested in the charity sector, international development, WaterAid or seeing how an international organisation functions.
