Hi Friederike,

It looks great... well done to you and your colleagues at SuSanA.

One comment/observation..

In the section "What is SuSanA?", we say "..it is an open network with members who are dedicated to understanding viable and sustainable sanitation solutions".. whereas later in the section "Who can join?" we say, ..." understanding and PROMOTING sustainable sanitation solutions".

In the first sentence, I think we should also stress that SuSanA is about promoting as well as understanding. I also wonder whether it is necessary to say "viable and sustainable" when the definition of sustainable incorporates viability but the first comment is more important as SuSanA is a community who are keen to learn/understand so as to improve practice and influence policy.

best regards,

Jonathan

Bonjour!

I am happy to announce that the SuSanA Flyer is now available in French

The 1-page Flyer gives a general overview of SuSanA, its objectives, working group topics, roles, discussion forum and funding.


The SuSanA Secretariat has ordered hardcopies and you are most welcome to contact us, if you are interested in receiving a few of them.


Best regards,

Dear all,

I am pleased to let you know that a new version of the SuSanA flyer is now available.
After two years, it was time to overhaul the flyer, to update the figures and numbers of the SuSanA network and to better explain the tools and services that the SuSanA platform offers.

The flyer aims to give a quick overview about SuSanA, its scope, its aims and the SuSanA online platform. It explains what you can find under the SuSanA umbrella and what SuSanA means when speaking about "sustainable sanitation".

Thanks to Arno Rosemarin, Sarah Dickin, Carol McCreary, Diane Kellogg, Leonie Lohwasser and Elisabeth von Muench for providing feedback to earlier versions of the flyer.

In case you have some further ideas and suggestions, please post them on the Forum - the next update of the flyer is sure to happen in the upcoming years..

If you want to distribute the flyer at any events you are attending, please feel free to print the flyer.
The flyer is available in the SuSanA library: www.susana.org/en/resources/library/details/2084

Best regards,

Hi Anne,
I like the new flyer, thanks to everyone who was involved in this major overhaul!

I am putting here some thoughts for improvement for when it is updated and printed the next time:

  1. I think the front page of the flyer is a bit bland and it's not clear that the flyer is about SuSanA (the flyer could also be about sustainable sanitation in general)
  2. I would not put the photo credits in the caption of the two photos as that is distracting (who cares that the group photo was taken by F. Luedermann!?). You could mention the credits on the last page.
  3. You might consider making all the website and resource links clickable so that the flyer works not only as a paper version but also when viewed online (in fact, this would still be easy to modify now)
  4. Under "Contact us" I would also put the encouragement to post on the Forum.
  5. We are using different terms for the same thing now: Knowledge Hub, platform, umbrella... are these just buzz words or have we decided what we'd like to be seen as?
  6. I think the flyer should also mention SuSanA members' work on Wikipedia pages, not just the SuSanA Wiki pages (e.g. see here the new Wikipedia page on FSM: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fecal_sludge_management )
  7. We could perhaps also highlight the map function of the project database which is currently little known (www.susana.org/en/resources/projects and then click on the world symbol at the top right or click here directly: www.susana.org/en/resources/projects?map=show)
  8. Take out the fullstop after "SuSanA’s 12 working groups"
  9. Crop the top part of the group picture.

If anyone else has suggestions for improvements for further versions please put them in this thread so they are available when the time comes for the next version. Thanks!

Note by moderator: Carol is referring to Jonathan's post above from 21 Aug 2014.

Thank you, Jonathan. PROMOTING and UNDERSTANDING are two different things. The final wording "dedicated to ADVANCING sustainable sanitation systems" makes sense.

I don't have the brains or years left to educate myself to your level of understanding. But I have enough understanding to know how important it is to promote your work and that of others. Plus it's rather fun hanging out on the shoulders of giants.

By the way, we're actively promoting the free MOOC "Planning and Design of Sustainable Sanitation Systems and Technologies" and the Compendium, as well as forming virtual study groups.
