Big ideas from the smallest room. A series hosted by Ikenna Azuike.
THE HAGUE, 21 JANUARY 2022 - To tackle the key injustice challenges in the world today we need bold, innovative and ambitious ideas from inspirational people. “Toilet Talks” is a show about big ideas from the smallest room and making the most powerful connections where you least expect them.
“Toilet Talks” is part of a wider programme of work by IRC that seeks to build intersectional awareness and action between activists and experts to move toward creating a more equitable world. By making new connections and opening lines of communications, changemakers from all sectors can make an impact. Because if we don’t connect the value of water and sanitation to social justice issues involving climate, health, gender, education and economic development, many Sustainable Development Goals are likely to fail.
“Toilet Talks” is hosted by Ikenna Azuike, a journalist and filmmaker who created the satirical news show “What's Up Africa,” which aired on BBC World News television for six seasons and was shortlisted for an Association of International Broadcasters Award.
The show is launching with five episodes where Ikenna, while sitting on his toilet, questions motivational people from their toilets about the pressing social issues of the day. Having candid conversations about issues that affect real people around the world, "Toilet Talks" tackles social justice issues in a more personal setting.
