A trip to a public bathroom stall several years ago inspired journalist Rose George to think outside of the box.“I asked myself the question: Where does this stuff go?” George remembers. “With this question, I found myself plunged into the world of sanitation, toilets and poop. And I have yet to emerge.”
As the author of The Big Necessity, Rose George brings a global perspective to sanitation practices and behaviors on a world-wide basis. Her book describes the cultural, bacteriological and psychological landscape of this rarely explored topic, citing examples from London to Johannesburg to Mumbai to Moscow.
Rose’s talk will draw from her experiences and observations, and will key the audience in on just how important toilet practices and sanitation are around the world.
If you would like to hear Rose speak in person, be sure to buy your tickets for IF Water 2014. The 3rd Annual IF Water Conference will be held on Tuesday, September 30th in conjunction with IdeaFestival® at the Kentucky International Convention Center. Read more.
