On the occasion of World Toilet Day 2022, the Union Minister of Housing and Urban Affairs (MoHUA), Hardeep Singh Puri, launched the Toilets 2.0 campaign in Bengaluru.
Story so far: Hardeep Singh Puri launched a campaign that employs group action, including residents and Metropolitan Local Bodies, to transform the look of public and community restrooms in urban India.
- Public places and restrooms that are clean and safe will enhance the quality of life for everyone.
- India plans to expand upon the Open Defecation Free (ODF) narrative.
Thematic areas: The campaign is divided into five thematic areas: “People for Toilets,” which will concentrate on maintaining and cleaning community and public restrooms; “Partners for Toilets,” which aims to adopt public restrooms; “Design Toilets,” which is a design competition; “Rate your Toilet,” which will encourage user feedback to improve public restrooms; and “My thoughts – Our Toilets,” which will seek to gather public opinion about restrooms.
