If you’re new to SuSanA you might be wondering what has SuSanA been up to in the last 10 years? How and why did it all start? Who were the key people involved over these 10 years?
You can find all that out now by watching an entertaining video which contains the story of SuSanA, told by people who were there:
Please have a look and tell us what you think!
The video is a bit long (48 minutes) but how about you just jump in somewhere and get entertained and informed. Thilo Panzerbieter is moderating the stories of the different people. In the video you will see and hear from:
Arne Panesar (re-aneacting a crucial phone call with Arno Rosemarin)
A very funny section is the re-enacment of the phone call by Arne and Arno in December 2006 where they pondered over the upcoming Year of Sanitation in 2008, and decided to have a meeting in early 2007 to discuss sustainability issues (this meeting became the “birth” of SuSanA). It starts at 6:24 into the video (the link below should take you straight there; if it doesn't then go to minute 6:24 in the video):
