Hello SDG Asia participants,

I'm sorry to have missed the web conference today, but it would seem that there was a good number of attendees, particularly from the Soegijapranata Catholic University team, with Bram introducing a number of new attendees!  (Annet, Adeliaayu, Aurelandini, Tri Fena, Theresia)

My 7 year-old son had a high fever (40.7 C) this afternoon and I took him to see the doctor.   They decided it was a minor heat stroke, but he is doing fine now!

I'm very happy to see that even without me present, the project members managed to exchange some ideas in the web conference chat!

I also see that there has been quite a lot of activity on the discussion forums:

- on SDG 9, Anish posted about the Belt and Road Initiative and Mega Projects of Nepal, and several of the Soegijapranata team members put up some excellent posts about infrastructure projects such as bridges, dams, and highway roads.

- on the Mind Mapping forum Krishna posted some excellent links to help everyone get started.  Manju has posted a very clear SWOC analysis mindmap, and Bram has asked her if she thinks a project plan can be derived.  Bram also posted a mindmap breaking down their Waste Management project into constituent elements.  I posted to Samreen to help her find the website, or she could use other links that Krishna or I have suggested to find mindmapping tools.

I suggest that we continue our mindmapping and related discussion on the forum, and set another web conference on June 30, 4pm HK time.

Bram, if you can get your team members online again on the 30th, I'd be delighted to give them an opportunity to briefly present about their SDG 9 posts!

Best wishes,
