RUVIVAL produces e-learning material concerned with sustainable rural development. The project exists since 2016 as part of the Hamburg Open Online University (HOOU). The RUVIVAL Team produces the material at the Hamburg University of Technology (TUHH).
The aim is to spread knowledge on sustainable practices. This e-learning website gives you the tools to implement sustainable practices in the area of sanitation, water and soil conservation.
You will find our guiding principles in our mission statement. For a glimpse into how RUVIVAL is created, have a look at our Making of RUVIVAL Lernangebot. You can also connect with us on social media.
The RUVIVAL logo [seen above] symbolises the reviving of rural areas, especially areas suffering from erosion. Rural areas harbour one of the most vital resources as healthy soil is the foundation for food production and agricultural practices are intertwined with the health of our water bodies.
The RUVIVAL material consists of four parts: toolboxes, lectures, a simulation game and the RUVIVAL community. New materials are added weekly to the toolboxes or lectures in English, Spanish, French and German. To keep up to date with new publications you can sign up for our newsletter.
