As one of the founders of the SuSanA Forum, it is a pleasure for me to see that the forum is still growing. There have been many doubts in the beginning, but the last 2 years are impressivly showing that SuSanA is on the right track with this "new" approach. I wish you all fruitful further discussions and:

Happy Birthday SuSanA Forum!!!

  • Sanitation is dignity and life. Through living and working 15 years in (Mozambique) where Cholera is endemic, the importance of sanitation became evident, furthermore it is clear that sanitation is more than an infrastructure

Happy Birthday SuSanA forum!
Two years back we launced the SuSanA forum at the AfricaSan Conference. I was not really aware of and could at that time not imagine what a powerful knowledge exchange platforum the SuSanA Forum would turn into! It is really very interesting to follow some of the discussions and see how new people enter the forum and get engaged.
Warmest congratulation to all of you out there in the cyberspace contributing with interesting content and knowledge and of caurse warmest congratulation to the proactive and dedicated team moderating and developing the forum.

It was a not a too short way from the idea of an "open" discussion forum to designing a fist concept and convincing all members to join our efforts and to support its use after its launch in Kigali.
It is impressive how the usage of this platform has increased rapidly after its launch showing that it we have filled in a real gap.

I am happy to see how this forum contributes to some of the main roles of SuSanA: providing a discussion and learning platform, sharing knowledge, and coordinate our efforts in understanding and promoting sustainable sanitation and a system approach.
It has become (together with the web platform of SuSanA and the there available collection of resources) a powerful tool in order to raise the profile of sustainable sanitation and to contribute to push the topic high up in the agenda of the sector.

I hope we can built up of these two successful 2 years and extend its usage for the future. Congratulations to the developer of this forum and the team moderating it on a daily basis, good work and big thank you!

Happy birthday!

Dear SuSanA forum,

happy birthday from me, too! Wow, two years - it doesn't feel like being so long. The discussions pro and contra a forum are still very fresh in my mind. I am really happy that you didn't listen to my pessimistic view on starting "another forum" and simply did it.
I really enjoy following the posts, am learning about new projects, other perspectives and view points and can easily follow interesting activities via this tool. Great!

I wish you all the best for the years to come and hope you continue to accompany my daily life. I know a lot of hard and daily work is done in the backend of the forum that it performs so well and smooth for its frontend users and I can just hope that a sustainable support can be guaranteed over time.

All the best to all of us as we are the SuSanA forum,
yours, Martina.

Also a happy birthday from me to the SuSanA forum!

Thank you for the suggestions, which we (secretariat) will take on board and see what we (SuSanA community) can manage in the next year.

The 8th July is the date that is deemed the Birthday as that was the day that the forum received its first post by a person outside of the developing team. And for a short trip down memory lane here is the link to the first post: forum.susana.org/forum/categories/3-sugg...-and-well-structured

Happy birthday, and I hope that you can continue this forum.
I introduced various other organisations and persons to this forum, and they found it very useful. Especially these persons realised that with a little help/direction and further through self-search, one can obtain a lot of practical information from the Susana library and Internet. Susana helps a lot with focussing on key themes and presenting expert advice with keywords that help newcomers to further gain knowledge.
I feel that through Susana aspects such as UDDT, biogas and composting systems are gaining more awareness and will eventually lead to better sustainable toiletsystems.
Thanks.

Dear all,

even though I am currently not so activly contributing to the forum, it is and has been of great value to my work. It keeps me update on trends, events, research and all sorts of opinion, since I usually screen through the weekly digest. It also provides a perfect base for getting valueable feedback from colleagues to some of my technical questions. I hope this forum continues to grow and to be relevant for the sanitation sector in future. Congrats to the community managers that are doing a fantastic job in the background!!!

Best regards,

Dear all,
it is also great for me to see what has happened with the forum until now and how this brought the idea of crowd intelligence in the middle of the sustainable sanitation community.
Succeeding Phillip as website manager and team member of the SuSanA secretariat I was involved in the creation of the digest service which I think helped all of us to make the amount of information better accessible.
I am really looking forward to seeing more and more people being part of the crowd!

And thanks to the forum managers - you are really doing a great job!

Have a nice evening and a great summertime!

Best,
Enno

Dear SuSanA Forum, Happy Happy belated Birthday!

I'm very thankful for the support by the SuSanA team and the community! The MoSan toilets only became known by the forum, by your contribution, ideas and inputs! For me the forum is a great source for inspiration, collecting feedback and new insights! It helped me a lot to reflect on my work and find answers to new questions.

I just checked the statistics and I'm overwhelmed. The first thread about the MoSan toilets got 16.041 views, in total 64 replies and I'm the 20th most active user! Amazing! I'm very happy to be part of it!

Many thanks to the SuSanA Team, the readers and active users!
I'm looking forward to new discussions!

Best,
Mona
