SuSanA is turning 10 – Celebrate with us - live streaming from Eschborn on Tuesday, 17th January 2017, from 10:00–12:00, 13:00-14:00 & 16:00-17:00 CET

Dear all,

SuSanA was born in January 2007 when a range of sanitation enthusiasts from various organisations met in Eschborn to coordinate their activities for the International Year of Sanitation. That’s almost 10 years ago and we cordially invite you to celebrate SuSanA’s anniversary with us!

Together with the SuSanA Core Group, key donors and partners, we will be looking back at SuSanA’s achievements and impact during the last 10 years and we will be reflecting on the way forward to discuss SuSanA’s contribution to the 2030 Agenda for sustainable development.

The Celebration Ceremony will be livestreamed and we cordially invite you to join us online!

The theme of the anniversary is: "10 years SuSanA: How the changed sanitation paradigm contributes to the Sustainable Development Goals"

With the SDGs and the 2030 Agenda, many of SuSanA’s positions are now on the highest political agenda; nonetheless the challenges ahead are huge.

During the celebration, the final draft of the updated SuSanA Vision Document “Contribution of Sustainable Sanitation to the 2030 Agenda of Sustainable Development” will be presented.

We invite you to watch the celebration online and to share your ideas, thoughts and comments on how SuSanA can positively contribute to the challenges ahead via the SuSanA Forum.

When: Tuesday, 17th January 2017, from 10:00 – 12:00 CET and 13:00-14:00 CET and 16:00-17:00 CET

Where: Via Skype for Business or via Skype Web App

Please find the detailed agenda attached.

We look forward to meeting you online.

Best regards,

SuSanA Secretariat (Arne Panesar, Cecilia Rodrigues, Doreen Mbalo, Annkathrin Tempel, Antonio Seoane, Manuel Greulich and Martin Puszies)

Very exciting, wow 10 years already!

I look forward to being there in person as Eschborn is close to where I live. But I do hope lots of SuSanA members will pop in for at least part of the day by using the live streaming over the internet.

Let's advertise the live streaming link widely! I hope many of you can make it.

We'll also have a twitter hashtag (still deciding on what it should be, will let you know - or make suggestions here).

10 years already, so great! What I really like about the SuSanA is that it created a sustainable pool of knowledge that isn't limited to the reach of one single institution and does not end when funding for one project stops. All of this next to the benefits of a global network of organisations that care about a single cause. Pamoja tutajenga!

Hashtag: I believe that #susana10 would be short enough for Twitter use.

Livestream: will it be limited to Skype or is there any other platform independent solution available? And will there be a shortlink to the livestream?

Yes, so we will use the hashtag #susana10 for any tweets related to the SuSanA 10-year celebration event this Tuesday! Please look out for tweets with that hashtag and make your own as well. you could use it to send "happy birthday tweets" to SuSanA.

Juergen: your other question I will give to Anne to answer. Do you suspect that the skype livestream won't work well (I've never used skype for business for livestreaming)?

Hi Jürgen,
GIZ's technical support team, who is supporting us with the livestreaming, is recommmending Skype for Business. It is supposed to work very well! So let's give it a try. And I hope that many SuSanA members will join the celebration virtually.

We have an exciting programme: Thilo Panzerbieter and SuSanA members will tell "the story" of SuSanA and Roland Schertenleib and Elisabeth Kvarnström will present SuSanA's revised vision document that outlines SuSanA's response to the transition from the MDGs to the SDGs...

Best regards,
Anne

Re: Thank you for celebrating the 10th Anniversary of the Sustainable Sanitation Alliance with us!

Dear all,

we had the great pleasure to celebrate the 10th Anniversary of the Sustainable Sanitation Alliance in Eschborn, Germany on the 17th of January 2017. The theme of the anniversary was, "10 years SuSanA: How the changed sanitation paradigm contributes to the Sustainable Development Goals"

We had an exciting review of the last decade and an interesting exchange on SuSanA’s milestones and impact in the field of sanitation. During the celebration, the final draft of the updated SuSanA Vision Document ‘SuSanA Vision 2030: Contribution to Agenda 2030 for Sustainable Development” was for the first time, presented to the public. This document contains views on the shift from the MDGs to the SDGs, continuing challenges and new opportunities for SuSanA, Sanitation interlinkages across the SDGs and SuSanA’s objectives and goals. The Document is now available online for you to be viewed here:
www.susana.org/en/resources/library/details/2715
It will be open for your comments soon, follow our SuSanA forum for announcements on your participation in the review. During the World Café/ Market place session which was held in the afternoon, up-coming topics, new ideas and timelines were highlighted and discussed.


We want to sincerely thank everyone who joined the anniversary in Eschborn and online through our live stream. The recording of the livestream will be available soon! Watch this space! We would also like to appreciate Susanne Asheuer for creating this great visualization (below) of the anniversary and the past 10 years of SuSanA. Last but not least, we thank the SuSanA community and the impact they have had in the field of sustainable sanitation. We look forward to many more years!

Re: Thank you for celebrating the 10th Anniversary of the Sustainable Sanitation Alliance with us!

I would like to thank the secretariat, the interns and all involved in organizing this event. It was indeed a really nice celebration!! I was fortunate to be able to attend in person (as I live close-by to Eschborn). It was like a big family gathering, catching up with people I've known for a long time but also meeting new people, e.g. those whom I had only known from forum posts and skype calls so far. The atmosphere was great: friendly, supporting, light-hearted but also hard working, concentrated and passionate for the cause of sanitation.

I enjoyed the "history story" about how SuSanA evolved, which was moderated and prepared by Thilo Panzerbieter (including a re-enactment of a crucial phone call between Arne Panesar and Arno Rosemarin in 2007) (this half-hour slot was filmed and should be available soon on SuSanA's Youtube channel); nice to see Christine Werner in the room who's just come back from Morocco and who played a big role in shaping SuSanA in its early years, together with her team in Eschborn. The little band (Peter Hawkins trumpet, Arne Panesar and Stefan Reuter on the guitars) and toilet-shaped and poo-shaped birthday cakes were fun!

The "live drawing" (picture above) was also impressive although I am not so sure personally how/if this can be used to help people understand SuSanA in future. But it's pretty!

The photographer was a bit intrusive, I felt. Did we really need all that many photos (then again the group photo could have been better).

And I was very happy that the event was live streamed. At this point I would like to ask to hear from those who were taking part in the live stream: how was it for you? Did you feel included? Did you benefit? What could be done better regarding the live streaming in future? - Please share your thoughts!

I've asked the secretariat to please put together the twitter history as well, as we had a number of interesting tweets and lots of good photos with the hashtag #susana10. See here:
twitter.com/search?f=tweets&vertical=def...%23susana10&src=typd
(I see an unrelated tweet in second place but doesn't matter)

Thank you!

Regards,
Elisabeth
