Pre-conference workshop in 2012.

All DT2015 conference participants were  welcome to take part on the pre-conference workshop. The pre-conference workshop was held at the Tampere University of Applied Sciences (Kuntokatu 3, see map here). Presence of sanitation experts in the conference was utilized by using group work and discussions as learning methods. The workshop was also part of Finnish Red Cross sanitation training. In addition, Finnish university students  took the course and earned 2 ECTS credits. The participants got a certificate of the attendance and participation. Based on the outcomes of the pre-conference workshop, a new version of Internet based course Sustainable Water Supply and Sanitation (5 ECTS credits) is going to be available in fall 2015. The course will be offered to the students of Finnish universities and exchange students in cooperation with UniPID network every autumn for 3 years.
