Note by moderator: Carol is referring to Jonathan's post above from 21 Aug 2014.
+++++++

Thank you, Jonathan. PROMOTING and UNDERSTANDING are two different things. The final wording "dedicated to ADVANCING sustainable sanitation systems" makes sense.

I don't have the brains or years left to educate myself to your level of understanding. But I have enough understanding to know how important it is to promote your work and that of others. Plus it's rather fun hanging out on the shoulders of giants. :-)

By the way, we're actively promoting the free MOOC "Planning and Design of Sustainable Sanitation Systems and Technologies" and the Compendium, as well as forming virtual study groups.

Re: The SuSanA Flyer - an updated version now available (February 2019)

Hi Anne,
I like the new flyer, thanks to everyone who was involved in this major overhaul!

I am putting here some thoughts for improvement for when it is updated and printed the next time:
  1. I think the front page of the flyer is a bit bland and it's not clear that the flyer is about SuSanA (the flyer could also be about sustainable sanitation in general)
  2. I would not put the photo credits in the caption of the two photos as that is distracting (who cares that the group photo was taken by F. Luedermann!?). You could mention the credits on the last page.
  3. You might consider making all the website and resource links clickable so that the flyer works not only as a paper version but also when viewed online (in fact, this would still be easy to modify now)
  4. Under "Contact us" I would also put the encouragement to post on the Forum.
  5. We are using different terms for the same thing now: Knowledge Hub, platform, umbrella... are these just buzz words or have we decided what we'd like to be seen as?
  6. I think the flyer should also mention SuSanA members' work on Wikipedia pages, not just the SuSanA Wiki pages (e.g. see here the new Wikipedia page on FSM: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fecal_sludge_management )
  7. We could perhaps also highlight the map function of the project database which is currently little known (www.susana.org/en/resources/projects and then click on the world symbol at the top right or click here directly: www.susana.org/en/resources/projects?map=show)
  8. Take out the fullstop after "SuSanA’s 12 working groups"
  9. Crop the top part of the group picture.
If anyone else has suggestions for improvements for further versions please put them in this thread so they are available when the time comes for the next version. Thanks!

Re: The SuSanA Flyer - an updated version now available (February 2019)

Dear all,

I am pleased to let you know that a new version of the SuSanA flyer is now available.
After two years, it was time to overhaul the flyer, to update the figures and numbers of the SuSanA network and to better explain the tools and services that the SuSanA platform offers.

The flyer aims to give a quick overview about SuSanA, its scope, its aims and the SuSanA online platform. It explains what you can find under the SuSanA umbrella and what SuSanA means when speaking about "sustainable sanitation".

Thanks to Arno Rosemarin, Sarah Dickin, Carol McCreary, Diane Kellogg, Leonie Lohwasser and Elisabeth von Muench for providing feedback to earlier versions of the flyer.

In case you have some further ideas and suggestions, please post them on the Forum - the next update of the flyer is sure to happen in the upcoming years..

If you want to distribute the flyer at any events you are attending, please feel free to print the flyer.
The flyer is available in the SuSanA library: www.susana.org/en/resources/library/details/2084

Best regards,

Hi Friederike,

It looks great... well done to you and your colleagues at SuSanA.

One comment/observation..

In the section "What is SuSanA?", we say "..it is an open network with members who are dedicated to understanding viable and sustainable sanitation solutions".. whereas later in the section "Who can join?" we say, ..." understanding and PROMOTING sustainable sanitation solutions".

In the first sentence, I think we should also stress that SuSanA is about promoting as well as understanding. I also wonder whether it is necessary to say "viable and sustainable" when the definition of sustainable incorporates viability but the first comment is more important as SuSanA is a community who are keen to learn/understand so as to improve practice and influence policy.

best regards,

Jonathan

Re: The SuSanA Flyer - an updated version now available (February 2019)

Dear SuSanA Community,

Thank you all for your comments and useful input resgarding the new SuSanA flyer. We are happy to tell you that the flyer is now in the process of being printed and that we were able to include a lot of your suggestions for improvement.

For example we changed the order of the photos; it has now a more logical flow, as it shows bad sanitation situations on the left and good ones on the right.
We also removed a large part of the pipework in the schematic on the front of the flyer, as it was suggested by several users. Additionally we made some small text changes and other formatting improvements.

I hope you like these changes, which were made just in time before the Stockholm World Water Week.

The final version of the flyer is attached below and is also in the SuSanA library here:

www.susana.org/en/resources/library/details/2084.

All further comments - that we were not able to address yet due to time constraints - will still be discussed, elaborated and worked into the second version of the flyer. Therefore you are still very welcome to give feedback and suggestions, as we will continue working on the SuSanA flyer.

Regards,
Friederike and Elisabeth

Hope you're enjoying your time in Canada. Just returned from six weeks on the British Columbia coast.

I'm sure that when all the flyer for World Water Week is done, key elements elements can be arranged on a flat page. Happy to help make a simple flat printable flyer so SuSanA partners can tell others where to get the best information. We get inquiries all the time. At the same time, it's nice to reply to inquiries and introduce SuSanA with links that take people to exactly what they are looking for.

Re the logos, great to see them anchoring web pages!

Re: The SuSanA Flyer - an updated version now available (February 2019)

Dear Elisabeth,

You combine a very different impression with the UDDT picture, as I do. Interesting!

My attempt to understand the sequence of pictures in the flyer(not only the one picture), resulted in demonstrating a waste water discharge for growing plants (the "story" I mentioned before). A logical sequence may begin e.g. with pictures from an open sewer(as in the flyer), an information meeting with stakeholders, the construction of a sanitary installation, completion, operation and treatment as well as utilization of the final products for crop production. So it is a matter of order, too.

It is not relevant whether the toilet is run with or without water, but to develop an approach that turns the initial problematic situation towards a sustainable and environmentally friendly solution.

I will gladly help to find the right pictures. I hope there are also suggestions of other forum members.
Best regards

Re: The SuSanA Flyer - an updated version now available (February 2019)

Dear Wolfgang,

Hah, that's funny you think someone could think the photo is showing flooding with wastewater for crop production? That had never occurred to me.
The photo was actually used on this page in the past:
programme.worldwaterweek.org/event/learning-from-wash-2928

to illustrate a seminar on Learning from WASH System Failures: Resilient Risk Reduction (see also: www.sei-international.org/video-archive/2827)

File Attachment:
UDDT withstanding Cyclone Aila 2009 by Sustainable sanitation , on Flickr

I like it because it does show how a UDDT can be used in flood-prone areas, but only insiders will know that it's a UDDT.

In any case, we are open to other photos. So if you have photos that you would like to suggest for this kind of flyer (or for the new SuSanA website), please don't hesitate to post the photo here or to send it in by e-mail (or to send me the link on flickr if it's already in our flickr database of 10,000 photos). It needs to be quite good resolution though, around 1 MB.

These are the photos we have currently selected for the flyer:
www.flickr.com/photos/gtzecosan/sets/72157645655099759/

Looking forward to seeing your photo suggestions.

Re: The SuSanA Flyer - an updated version now available (February 2019)

Dear Elisabeth,

It can be any kind of toilet that demonstrates our intention. The picture showing a small building in the middle of a flooding area is not a symbol for a toilet. Only you and several hundred other specialists know that there is a UDDT inside.

Concerning my intention to make conscious of recycling human excrements by hygienic treatment for crop production: The information I get from the pictures is that untreated waste water is used for crop production...

The flyer is made for non-specialists, I suppose, who accidentally come into contact with sustainable sanitation solutions and/or who want to deepen the subject. They should be be made curious by illustrations, they can understand.

Best regards
Wolfgang
