1. print off two copies of the feasibility study (Nayssam arrange) http://www.toronto.ca/parks/pdf/engagement/bio_toilet_feasibility_study.pdf

2. update the cob web pages, by going through what's there, changing present tense to past, adding some context paragraphs, adding more recent news, etc. (Georgie, with posting help from Aseel) http://dufferinpark.ca/cobcourtyard/wiki/wiki.php

3. Make a display about the bio-toilet feasibility study for several Dufferin Grove locations (excerpts form the study, annotations by Georgie, Bloor-Dufferin Residents Association background by Jutta)

4. Superimpose a bio-toilet onto the terrain using some Toronto playgrounds pictures to show feasibility or difficulty (Georgie, using photos taken on April 22, and photos taken by Nayssam afterwards, with a request list by Georgie and Jutta, specs to help Nayssam find good spots, by Georgie)

5. Make a generic display about the feasibility of bio-toilets, which can be put on a nice sandwich board and quickly adapted for individual locations, so we can cart it around to various parks on the occasion of events or markets or day-long playground visits by CELOS researchers this summer (Georgie does the content, Nayssam does the printing, arranging).
