Postcard from Paris

Regards from Paris, the city of love, fashion and history. Those themes, however, are not the reason why I am here, instead water, sanitation and safe food production are. I was honoured to be invited to participate 1st Ameli-Eaur International symposium on sustainable water and sanitation system and 7th International symposium on sustainable water and sanitation system on September 21st and 22nd 2010.

In spite of two titles the question is about one single event. It is organised by colleagues from Japan, France and Burkina Faso. The group of participants is not big, only about 40, but since all are sustainable saniation "believers" we are able to go straight to the point - that is actions and practices to promote sustainable sanitation and safe food production. Looking forward sharing my experiences and knowledge at TAMK after my return.
