More than 35,000 fantastic festival-goers helped us to Pump up the volume by signing our petition at Glastonbury 2013. We can’t THANK YOU enough!
Your signatures joined others from around the world to total an incredible 1.1 million people all calling for universal access to taps and toilets.
In September we presented the petition to Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg and world leaders at the United Nations General Assembly in New York. Just days later UN Member States agreed to step up their efforts on providing water and sanitation to those most in need.
We’re now one step closer to achieving a world where everyone, everywhere has access to safe water and sanitation. Your voices have helped make this possible.
Since we returned, our inbox has been full of great feedback from the people we met at the festival. We just wanted to say a big thank you to everyone who signed our petition and everyone who was so lovely to our volunteers.
We hope you enjoyed your festival experience as much as we did! We loved meeting you all and we’re very proud. We can’t wait to see you back at the farm in 2014, but until then you can find us on Facebook, follow us on Twitter or visit wateraid.org.
