3. and the Golden Poo Awards getting Stephen Fry in a twitter
The great and the good are seemingly very interested in water and sanitation, and it's boosting campaigning and focus within the sector.
Water and sanitation have long been the 'quiet' guys in the development gang, but they are finding their voice and an audience who are listening - check out Twitter for the hundreds of tweets on #waterwednesday about global water issues. (Perhaps we'll start #toilettuesday too?!)
What's further struck me is the prominence of high-profile supporters in these recent events - they all helped engage with new audiences. End Water Poverty will be soon involving high-level supporters in the hopes of reaching out to new campaigners, and also to further pressure decision makers and to help raise awareness of the global sanitation and water crisis. Get in touch if you think you can help.
You can also help us to spread the word by tweeting, blogging and writing about water and sanitation - and get involved with high-profile events like the World's Longest Toilet Queue on World Water Day 2010.
