Topic: Introduction by World Toilet Organization (WTO)
Widely known as Mr. Toilet, Jack broke the global taboo of toilet and sanitation by bringing the agenda to global media center-stage with his unique mix of humor and serious facts since more than 20 years. After establishing the Restroom Association of Singapore (RAS) in 1998, Jack created the World Toilet Organization (WTO) in 2001 as a global network and service platform for toilet associations to promote sound sanitation and public health policies. He then created multiple World Toilet Summits and Forums across the globe and received multiple awards and recognitions for his achievements, including the inaugural Singapore Green Plan Award (2004), the Social Entrepreneur of the Year awarded by Schwab Foundation of Switzerland (2006), Ashoka Global Fellow (2007), ADB Water Champion by Asian Development Bank (2008), Hero of the Environment by Times Magazine (2008), Asian of The Year 2009 by Channel News Asia, Asian of the Year 2011 by Reader’s Digest Magazine, and more. In 2013, Jack Sim was appointed Adjunct Professor at the College of Management Academic Study, teaching Social Entrepreneurship.
