Dear all,

We are happy to announce that the 5th Webinar with Gates Foundation sanitation grantees and SuSanA members will take place on:

Tuesday 21 January 2014, 16:30 - 17:15
(CET - Central European Time; use this time converter if you are unsure of the time difference to your location: www.timeanddate.com/worldclock/converter.html)

Topic: "Innovation in resource recovery and reuse"

We have found these webinars to be an excellent tool to exchange on research approaches and results and to hear directly from the "horse's mouth" what the achievements and difficulties are with these projects that have been funded by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.

This is the fifth webinar in a series this year with the aim to give increased exposure to the BMGF research grants, which are also discussed on the SuSanA Discussion Forum (see here to see recordings from the previous four webinars: forum.susana.org/forum/categories/139-ge...s-in-2013-number-1-4).

Agenda:

(16:00 - 16:30 Participants can start entering the room, last sound checks)

16:30 Recording starts
Introduction by moderator, short introduction of participants (1 min.).
Three presentations and questions (45 min. in total); each presentation is about 5 minutes long and is followed by around 10 minutes of questions (content of presentations: project objectives and timing, methods used, results and lessons learnt so far, way forward and open questions).

(1)
VUNA - Valorisation of Urine Nutrients in Africa
By Kai Udert, EAWAG, Switzerland - the project is taking place mainly in South Africa
Previous discussion about it on the forum: forum.susana.org/forum/categories/98-nut...-nutrients-in-africa



(2)
Structuring of the fecal sludge market for the benefit of poor households in Dakar, Senegal
By Mbaye Mbeguere, Senegal National Sanitation Utility, ONAS, Senegal
Previous discussion about it on the forum: forum.susana.org/forum/categories/97-ena...n-dakar-senegal-onas



(3)
Modeling the next generation of sanitation systems
By Luiza Campos, University College London, UK
Previous discussion about it on the forum: forum.susana.org/forum/categories/97-ena...ty-college-london-uk



Concluding remarks (1 min.)

17:15 End of webinar

Attendance at this webinar is open to any SuSanA member or interested people (your attendance will be with or without microphone rights and video, depending on the number of people as well as your bandwidth).

Once recorded, the webinar will be put online on the SuSanA Youtube channel (www.youtube.com/user/susanavideos) after some basic editing - see also links to previous recordings above.

During the webinar, people in the audience can also use the chat function of Adobe Connect to ask questions.

There is no need to download any software to attend (simply go to this website: meet26582448.adobeconnect.com/sei/). However, you must obtain the password to enter the room. To obtain the password, please e-mail myself or e-mail Elisabeth von Muench: This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it or Dorothee Spuhler ( This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it ).

Our main aim with these webinars is to have interesting discussions: this is not a one-way street but an exchange in both directions (and even amongst the audience by using the chat function). Try it out if you haven't been to one of our webinars yet, they are really good fun and inspiring.

Regards,
Arno, Dorothee & Elisabeth

Recording for webinar 5 - presentations by Kai Udert and Luiza Campos 25 Jan 2014 15:21 #7107

Dear all,

We had a very good turn-out at our last webinar (number 5) on "Resource recovery and reuse" (details above), with the highest number of participants so far. I think the topics of the presenters were very attractive and our advertising machine, including Sanitation Updates, also worked well.

What didn't work so well was our Adobe Connect system, because SEI moved office in early January and also had to renew/change their licence with Adobe Connect which meant that the server for the webinar was now in the US and no longer in Stockholm. So unfortunately, we had some technical problems and a limit of 25 participants - with the result that some people who tried to join right on time at 16:30 could no longer get into the virtual room (participant number exceeded). If you were one of them, we are very sorry! Arno is changing routines plus increasing room size to 100 to prevent reoccurrence for our future webinars.

Due to the technical problems described above, the recording of the webinar was full of flaws and I therefore cannot provide it to you, which is a real pity. However, the good news is that two of the presenters have already been so kind to re-record their presentations.

Further information about this webinar:
The webinar took place on: 21 January 2014, 16:30 - 17:45
We had 28 participants and a good mix of grantees and non-grantees. The participants asked many questions using the chat field inside of Adobe Connect which was a handy way to participate.

This was the fifth webinar in a series with the aim to give increased exposure to the BMGF research grants, which are also discussed on the SuSanA Discussion Forum (see above for more information about these webinars and to see past recordings).

We thank all presenters and participants for their effort and time!! We apologise once again for the technical problems. We hope that you enjoyed either the webinar or the recorded presentations (for the first time, we have made separate video clips for each presentation rather than one long video from the entire webinar; is this better for you?); and we look forward to welcoming you the sixth webinar with the topic "Productive Sanitation" which will take place on Tuesday, 25 February 2014 (details will be provided soon) - we promise to have a large enough virtual room this time to accommodate everyone and to have a good recording afterwards.

Regards,
Elisabeth, Arno, Dorothee, Nelson

P.S. Summaries of the question and answer session for each of the three presentations is available in the respective threads (except for Mbaye's).


(*) Nelson Ekane (SEI) was in the audience for the two re-recordings and asked some questions at the end; his volume was too low but the answers of the presenters are very clear.

Arno, Youtube is not allowed in China. I will miss the big event. Sorry. Just put my apples and urine story in the Forum. Please have a look at it.

Hi Scott

The live webinar takes place on Adobe Connect, and then is recorded and placed on YouTube after the webinar.

Are you able to access Adobe connect from China?
What would be the Chinese equivalent to Youtube, where videos on sustainable sanitation could be uploaded so that everyone in China could access them?

I have the same question as Trevor.
How about Vimeo instead of YouTube? Is that freely accessible in China?
Or how about videos that people post on their Facebook pages? Can they be viewed in China?

Dear Scott,

OK, Facebook no good either in China then. How about www.vimeo.com? Can you view videos from this video sharing website?
If not, what other video sharing website do people use in China?
And can you access the Adobe Connect website for live webinars? Try here:
