Work done?

Work done? No.

But our website is up and running and our final report has been returned to the professors and we are eagerly awaiting their comments. As soon as we get some feedback we will (if need be) do some changes and then publish it on our website (and here).

So what's left then? Well, just everything. It is NOW that it all begings, it is now that the changes should start to happen. Our work was only meant to be a seed that we planted and we hope that with your help it will grow big and strong.

Now is the time to be active.

Presentation held

So the presentation is done and now "only" remains to finalize the report by monday. We are on good way with it, just need to add a few things to make it as good as possible and we will upload that.

In the meantime feel free to check out our flashsite:

Presentation Day

Today is the day of our presentation. Are we nervous?... no, but still finalizing our final speech. The sun is shining outside and the temperature is almost 19 C degrees and it should be illegal for people here to spend their day indoors!

Our group is having the last presentation of five and the expectations will be high since we actually went to our target destination. We are planning to give the audience the "one piece of presentation" they are asking for! Go gO GO

Not gone, just busy busy busy

Don't worry. We ARE still here. We are just very busy with our project right now and the upcoming presentation we will do on Monday. No matter how much we have done it seems that with every page we put into the report we find it necessary to write two more.

But all in all that is a good thing since it means we will get the best possible results. Hopefully. As of now we are doing the layout of the final report, producing some pictures/drawings for the report and presentation and coding the webpage.

Lots to do, so few hours in the day.

Divide and Conquer

Today we sat down with the group and discussed our project. We made headway and divided up some tasks among the groupmembers seeing as we are all quite busy and making time to meet as a whole is quite difficult. Our plan now is to be finished a week ahead of schedule just to have the last week for doing final touches.

On a side note we had discovered two competitions which we are looking into entering just to spread the word even more (since that is one of our goals). The competitions are the "2011 AECOM Student competition: Urban SOS: Water" LINK and "Global Design Village: Disaster reduction: Saving lives through design" LINK.

Meeting with Ulla and Matleena

Yesterday we had a meeting with Matleena and Ulla and they were really interested in our trip and work and were asking a lot of questions. We told them about all the hard work and all the fun stuff too. We even showed them the presentation we had made for our last day over there. Well we just showed it in brief, after all, it was 50-60 slides. They seemed quite pleased with our work so far even though we still have quite far to go.

After the meeting we went out and had a group lunch (and later coffee) so that we could discuss our project a little bit more now that we had gotten some input from Ulla and Matleena. Some progress were made and we are quite confident the project will be finished before the deadline, well not realized (our time-span for that is about 20 years), but finished as in "one part of it is done".
