Around the Globe...


World Plumbing Day

Plumbers around the globe have been recognised on World Plumbing Day (March 11).

It is an initiative of the World Plumbing Council to highlight and celebrate the important role of plumbing when it comes to ensuring a healthy and safe society.

You only have to recall recent disasters like the 2011 Tsunami in Japan to understand how important safe drinking water and sanitation systems are to the modern world.

Easy to take for granted but potentially deadly when they are not there.

The World Plumbing Council is holding its General Meeting in Frankfurt, Germany on the 15th and 16 March 2013.


World Plumbing Conference

The 10th World Plumbing Conference is to be held in New Delhi, India from the
13th to the 15th of November 2013.

World Toilet Day 19 November

Can you imagine not having a toilet? Can you imagine not having privacy when you need to relieve yourself? Although unthinkable for those living in wealthy parts of the world, this is a harsh reality for many - in fact, one in three people on this globe, does not have access to a toilet! Have you ever thought about the true meaning of dignity?
