I would like to collaborate, but I am not sure on how is the best way. This will be my first time participating of a SiSanA meeting.

Dear all,

We have started to update our meeting page for the 31st SuSanA Meeting  where you can now find the overall structure of the meeting as well as a few more information. Take a look there from time to time to get the newest updates.

One of the updates is:
We are happy to announce the SuSanA "stepping-stone sessions", which will be organized by our SuSanA Regional chapters and take place prior to the SuSanA Meeting. These sessions will reflect on specific topics or challenges from the regions and gather the momentum and enthusiasm for the meeting in August.

They will take place on 22nd of June (India Chapter), 6th of July (Latin American Chapter), 13th of July (African Chapter) and 20th of July (WANA Chapter).
The registration form will be up soon and be posted again here in the forum as well as on the meeting page.

Stay tuned, healthy and safe,

Finn

Re: Annual WG1 meeting and P2P Launch - Join us!

Have you ever questioned your return on investment translating all your hard research into a peer-reviewed paper? Would you like to ensure your findings reach practitioners and inform decisions on the ground? 
Or have you ever been struggling to understand what all the research on sustainable sanitation going on within academia actually means for your daily work on the ground?
Then join us to catch-up on WG1  and learn about a new opportunity to share and unpack most relevant sustainable sanitation  papers and translate them into practitioner oriented messages.



Dear all

This is a save to the date for our annual Working Group 1 (Capacity Development) meeting and the launch of ‘Papers to Practice’ (P2P) on Tuesday, 17th of August 1:00 to 2:30 CEST (online)

This year, we will be hosting two slightly shorter sessions. Similar to previous years, we will start by coming together as WG 1 (45 minutes) to:
  • Share the Final WG1 Factsheet
  • Provide updates on the latest products/tools 
  • Share changes to capacity development activities in the face of COVID-19 and discuss what can we maintain moving forward
The second session (30 minutes), Laura Kohler from CAWST and Me (Dorothee Spuhler) from Eawag will present a new capacity development project that we have been piloting and which is called ‘Papers to Practice’, a podcast to unpack relevant sanitation publications to bridge the gap between research and practice in a way that is accessible to busy professionals. 

For the live session during the 31st SuSanA Meeting, we are looking for 1-2 sanitation-related publications to be unpacked during the 30 minute session. The interview format will mirror the format used in the actual podcast. We will ask the authors directly who should know about the publication or research and what are the key points so that professionals and practitioners working in sanitation can put the papers to practice! 

While we only have time for 1 to 2 publications for the live session, we will be recording and sharing episodes monthly. We will share more about the process and how to get involved during the session. 
If you have a paper or publication that you judge to be highly relevant but that is either complex or has low visibility, please share it with us either through the forum or via email (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.) in order that we can include it in the P2P series or the meeting on 17th August.

Stay tuned for the registration links for each session as we will be sharing these shortly.

We look forward to seeing you in August!

Re: Open Call for Sessions at the 31st SuSanA Meeting (Online) - 16 to 20 August 2021

Dear all,

as announced on Social Media and in the newsletter that was sent out yesterday, we have opened the registration for the SuSanA Meeting! You can register here  and find more information on the meeting here on the meeting page. 

Also, as written in the newsletter, the SuSanA Meetings are traditionally a place to exchange, network and connect with others. Due to the online format, having such informal side-talks is much more challenging. Therefore we decided to use an online tool called wonder.me which neither require any downloads nor installing a software on your device.
We created a room, which will be open throughout the entire SuSanA week and be used as a place to gather before and after the sessions.
We will send out the link to enter the room to all who register to the SuSanA Meeting next week with the session reminder emails. You can find a three minute introduction on what you need to know for wonder.me  here on YouTube  - make sure to watch this if you want to join. Please be aware that joining is only possible from a laptop or computer, but not from a mobile phone.

In case you didnt receive the newsletter, please check the settings in your profile:
1. login to your account on susana.org
2. click on "Change your details"
3. Make sure the box "unsubscribe SuSanA newsletter" is not ticked

Looking forward to connect with you soon!
