World Water Week at Chief Sealth: Community event Tuesday

For the third year, it’s World Water Week at Chief Sealth International High School – and the students/staff are hoping to shake us out of taking clean water/sanitation for granted. So many in the U.S. have it; so many in the rest of the world don’t. It’s a life-and-death topic, and yet it can be discussed with humor and inspiration – which is what you’ll hear from the man who’s traveled from the other side of the world to give the keynote speech tomorrow night, Jack Sim, founder of the World Toilet Organization.

He’s at the school today, and speaks at 7 pm Tuesday in the Sealth auditorium, right after a 6 pm resource fair at the school, and you’re welcome to attend the event for free. (Donations are welcome – here! – to support the ongoing WWW-related awareness-raising work, though.)

    This is great! It’s so nice to see students getting involved on such topics. We as a society really do take clean water for granted. So much so, that we have huge theme parks devoted specifically to use water for our entertainment.

    I’m personally so excited to see/meet Jack Sim! For those who are curious, take a look at this video:

    He is such an inspiration!
