Every year we think Glastonbury can’t possibly get any better, and every year you prove us wrong with your amazing support.
In 2014, a massive 38,125 Festival-goers signed our Change the Record petition, for a world where everyone, everywhere has safe water and toilets. Every one of these names was delivered to the UK Government by WaterAid. Together, we gave the strongest possible message about the importance of clean water and decent toilets – and we couldn’t have done it without you.
This year we’ll be asking you to help #MakeItHappen for the 748 million people still without safe water, and the 2.5 billion people with nowhere safe or hygienic to go to the toilet.
Come and talk taps and toilets with our wonderful team of staff and volunteers at our stand at the Pyramid Stage, our ten water kiosks – where we provide free refills of water, our compost loos in the King’s Meadow, and our revolutionary ShePees.
Improving access to safe water, sanitation and hygiene is the most basic and vital investment that governments should be making. These essential services can transform lives, giving people better health, the chance to prosper, and keeping them safe.
This September, world leaders will decide how to end extreme poverty by 2030 – clean water and safe toilets must be on this list. Join us this summer to ask governments to reach everyone, everywhere.
See you on the farm!
