Urine Diversion Webinar: Tove Larsen's keynote address at the 3rd Annual Urine Diversion Summit (USA)

Drawing on decades of international experience, Dr. Tove Larsen's keynote address will address the past and future of urine diversion as a sustainable wastewater strategy. She will present on Thursday, August 17 at 10:00 EDT (14:00 UTC) at the 3rd Annual Urine Diversion Summit, hosted by the Rich Earth Institute in Vermont, USA.

Dr. Tove Larsen is a chemical engineer with a PhD in process engineering from the Department of Environmental Science and Engineering, Technical University of Denmark. In 1999, she came to Eawag, the Swiss Federal Institute of Aquatic Science and Technology, to set up a cross-cutting project on urine source separation (Novaquatis). Novaquatis was successfully terminated in 2006 ( www.novaquatis.eawag.ch ) and won the swiss-academies award for transdisciplinary research in 2008 for its visionary, innovative and integrative approach to urban water management. At present Tove Larsen heads a group on ‘Concepts’ in the Department of Urban Water Management at Eawag. Tove Larsen led the Eawag project ‘Diversion for safe sanitation’, which won a special recognition price in the Reinvent The Toilet Challenge competition, launched by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.

The webinar will last one hour and there will be time for responding to Tove's remarks. We hope you will be able to join us for this very informative presentation. You will be sent a link and reminder on August 15 in order to join this gathering.

Re: Urine Diversion Webinar: Tove Larsen's keynote address at the 3rd Annual Urine Diversion Summit (USA)

Dear Abraham,

Could you please tell us a bit more about this "3rd Annual Urine Diversion Summit, hosted by the Rich Earth Institute in Vermont, USA"?
Is there a website where the program and the presentations (and videos?) could be accessed?
How many people, and what kind of people, attended this? I am very curious.

Are you seeing increased uptake or interest in urine diversion systems in Vermont or the U.S. in general?

Regards,
Elisabeth

Please join us for Rich Earth Institute's
4th Annual Urine Diversion Summit

August 16th and 17th 2018
in Brattleboro, Vermont

Keynote address from Dr. Sasha Kramer

The Urine Diversion Summit is a convergence of passionate people working to transform human waste into a resource. Building upon the success of the past three summits, the conference will include lightning talks from participants, small group sessions focused on regulation, technical advances, cultural concerns, and research results.

This year Dr. Sasha Kramer, Co-founder and Executive Director of SOIL Haiti will be our keynote speaker. Dr. Kramer received her Ph.D. in Ecology from Stanford University in 2006 and co-founded SOIL that same year while also completing a postdoctoral research position with the Collaboratory for Research on Global Projects at Stanford. While Sasha spends the majority of her time living and working in Haiti, she is also a global advocate for the recycling of nutrients in human waste, helping others implement sustainable sanitation projects and inspiring people around the world to participate in the sanitation revolution.

To reserve your place at this one-of-a-kind conference and read our newly published Urine Diversion Summit Report, please visit richearthinstitute.org/RSVP ( richearthinstitute.org/rsvp ).

Please share with others who might like to attend!

2017 Summit reactions:

“We are better off due to the connections that we were able to make with other institutions/individuals who will help move our research forward.”

100% of 2017 Summit participant respondents said they would recommend this conference to others.

Re: Summit & Webinar on Urine Diversion - Nov. 7th & 8th, Michigan, USA

Can anyone who attended this event provide some feedback please?
The detailed agenda is here: richearthinstitute.org/our-work/ud-summi...ailed-summit-agenda/
I bet it was a very interesting event to see where urine diversion is at, on the East Coast of the US.

The keynote presentation was streamed so I hope the recording will be made available soon.

Here is the recording from the year before:
"At our 2018 Urine Diversion Summit held in Brattleboro, VT we were joined by SOIL Haiti's Dr. Sasha Kramer as she shared her experiences with Container Based Sanitation in periurban areas in Haiti."
