I would like to thank all of you for joining and participating in our meeting. It was a very inspiring day with excellent inputs on a variety of topics and giving us important messages along the way: Endavouring sector coordination, buidling knowledge management and partnership into our performance and learning plans, failing forward and learning by unpacking the reasons..


A special thanks to SEI for hosting this event and making sure that people around the world could join by watching the livestream! It was amazing to see the huge amount of tweets throughout the meeting.

The video files and presentations of the SuSanA meeting will be soon available on the SuSanA platform www.susana.org/en/events/susana-meetings...na-meeting-stockholm

We are looking forward to meeting you at the 21th SuSanA meeting in 2016!

This year, unfortunately, the 20th SuSanA meeting remains the only SuSanA event with live streaming. For those who are interested in watching and listening to other Stockholm events, please click here to follow the World Water Week via virtual attendance.

I am glad you also caught the live streaming from the 20th SuSanA meeting. I spent almost my entire Saturday "attending" it and it was great. I guess the full potential was realised for people who also use twitter as that was the most practical way of sending in questions. I was thrilled when Trevor took about 2-3 of my questions that I sent via twitter and posed them to the presenters (but questions could have also been sent by e-mail).

I wonder how many people attended the live streaming. I think there might have been a few limitations there which might have prevented wider attendance this year:
  1. Time difference - as not everyone would be as dedicated as you to get up in the middle of the night when the time difference is 7 hours or more! Nothing can be done about that.
  2. Internet access during a non-working day. As has been pointed out from a SuSanA member from Indonesia here, not everyone has internet access outside of working hours. I know SuSanA meetings are traditionally/often on a weekend day, but that's a limitation for some people.
  3. Slow internet connection speed - although here it was really encouraging to hear that Chris Canada was able to follow it from Ecuador and I know he is on a slow connection.
  4. Still insufficient advertising about the live streaming; perhaps an e-mail could have been sent to all SuSanA members to make them aware that it's on (the day before).

Well, live streaming is the way of the future, so we can improve for next year!

The camera work of the Swedish film crew was superb, everything was clear, and different angles and zooms made it interesting to watch.

The recording will soon be available here: www.susana.org/en/events/susana-meetings...na-meeting-stockholm
so you can then see for yourself.

Brian: to answer your question, I don't think there are plans to have the working group meetings this week live streamed. I guess the costs would be too high for such "smaller" meetings.

Evelyn: I liked the flyer of relevant events that you put together for this week in Stockholm here:
www.susana.org/images/documents/04-meeti...WWW-flyer_JT%203.pdf
Could you please also indicate which ones have live streaming (with links to Outlook calendar entries so that we can put them in our diaries)? I know that the larger events at Stockholm World Water Week, or those where the convenors pay (?), are streamed these days.

Regards,
Elisabeth]]>

Thanks to Susan Davis for her presentation on "Failing forwards" at the 20th SuSanA meeting.*
For those attending SWWW and are interested in the topic, please join us also for the seminar on
Tuesday 16.00 (FH 202) called

Mistakes to successes: Learning from errors
co-conveyned by HELVETAS, cewas, Sandec and the Swiss Water Partnership...

programme.worldwaterweek.org/event/4698

Making errors is an important element of development processes. Identifying errors requires systematic learning and evaluation processes. Moreover, turning errors into successes calls for appropriate mechanisms, including close collaboration between research and practice enabling the development and testing of new approaches. Even though organisations’ willingness to openly communicate on errors cannot be taken for granted as this could jeopardize their reputation, a paradigm shift in how errors are considered can be observed.

Are you also questioning yourself how to navigate best through the programme of the World Water Week?

The SuSanA Secretariat has compiled a flyer of all SuSanA events and partner of SuSanA events during the World Water Week which is now available for download. This will help you to get an overview of many exciting sessions and events around sustainable sanitation!

And don’t forget - For everyone who wishes to attend the 20th SuSanA meeting but is not able to, we made available a live stream link that you could find in the 20th SuSanA Meeting homepage. Just be sure of having a good internet connection.

I did it last year and it was a real pleasure. I didn't manage the whole Saturday but some hours of it. If needed, you can also multi-task, i.e. watch the meeting and also have lunch with your kids etc.
Questions and comments can be posed on twitter with the hashtag #20susana.
Whilst the meeting will also be recorded, there is a special "something" about attending it live - it is much more fun than merely watching the recording later.

Dear secretariat,
Please advertise the live stream link as soon as possible and generally advertise the option of attendance via the live streaming on all SuSanA channels (twitter, facebook, forum - perhaps even an e-mail going out to all members? Or e-mail to the working group with the biggest mailing list?). It is easy to miss as it's on a Saturday... (and I guess many people won't have access if they only have access to broadband internet from their work computers; that's a disadvantage for having the SuSanA meeting on a Saturday).

Please also make sure that people are aware of the camera, that they look into the camera from time to time and that they acknowledge the "internet audience" (also by re-iterating the names of the persons speaking; e.g. for people who tune in later) - I hope there will be a few of us "virtual participants"! I firmly believe this is the way of the future to cut down on CO2 emissions and travel costs. See here about a previous thread regarding air travel to conferences:

I would find it useful to have the information on the different Working group meetings (date, time, venue) also on this agenda for ease of organization and prevent confusions.... would that be possible?
