Rose George's Sanitation Keynote Speech is Candid and Alarming

In this powerful and shocking sanitation keynote speech by journalist Rose George, we are jolted and enraged by the fact that 2.5 billion people worldwide have no access to a basic sanitary toilet while we take it for granted.

Thinking about bathrooms, human waste and how toilets work is not something most of us think about often, but it is something we should as this sanitation keynote speech shows. George plunges us with her into the world of sanitation, toilets and "poop" where there lives a shocking kaleidoscope of untold stories about death and disease.

This blunt and engaging speech makes you feel lucky to have the privilege of using a toilet and being able to wash your hands after because 40% of the world does not have that option. The only option they have is open defecation, which carries an array of bacteria and viruses which makes it the second biggest killer of children worldwide.
