Crisis Talks are happening in almost 20 countries, from Cameroon to Bangladesh, Nigeria, Togo and the Netherlands. In Malawi, a Crisis Talk hearing is taking place in Ndirande township to ensure decision makers are brought directly to the crisis and ommunities affected by a lack of clean water and safe sanitation are presenting their demands through drama, recitals, dances and quizzes! In Liberia, there will be public hearings held in Monrovia, Montserrado, Nimba and Grand Bassa to highlight the extent of the crisis whilst plenary discussions and debates are planned in Mali and Burundi.
If you are organising a Crisis Talk, our new template press release will help you to get in touch with journalists, invite them to your event and ask them to report about the water and sanitation crisis. Please add information about the situation in your country and about the Crisis Talk you have planned!
And remember - it's not too late to organise a Crisis Talk! These events can happen anytime from now until the Sanitation and Water for All High-Level Meeting on 20 April 2012! Get in touch with Fleur on firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in taking part.
