The Simulation Game is an interactive learning tool for planning eco-towns, that was developed at the Institute of Wastewater Management and Water Protection at Hamburg University of Technology (TUHH). The goal is to plan a small Eco-Town with an ecological design using system thinking and synergetic effects of resource cycles. The planning takes place in a simulated world, with different groups planning Eco-Towns in different climates. You will plan two towns in Wales and two in Ethiopia.

How can I take part?

If you want to participate in our new game (starting May 2021), you are invited to our HumHub platform. As an external participant, you play the role of an inhabitant in one of the newly planned towns. You are able to take action and influence the planning progress.

How does the Simulation Game work?

The Game is open for external participants, who can take on the role of village inhabitants. As an inhabitant you are part of the decision making processes of the planning process. Furthermore, you can write newspaper articles and travel to other towns to see how they plan their Eco-Towns. Therefore, you participate in local and international debates by contributing with your knowledge, creativity and experiences. You should take on a role, which can reflect your real life or you create a new one and research the needs of your created persona. The level of engagement and amount of time spent in the Game is determined by your level of interest and engagement during the two month.

In each town are specific planning groups handled by master degree students from Hamburg, Paris and Toulouse and maybe soon others. These planning groups try to find specific solutions for the places they choose in the area of the planned settlement. Therefore, subgroups focusing on water, energy, buildings, transport or community impact, just to name some aspects have to coordinate their planning processes. You will discuss state of the art environmental innovations and discuss, especially, if they suit the socio-economic and ecological environment. Every Eco-Town has to react to obstacles and changes of their planning environment. You will rely on data collected in the “real” world, however, once we started conditions can change.

HumHub Platform

The Simulation Game is realised by using the platform HumHub. You will have specific rooms for specific purposes, like the exhibition hall for international conferences to show milestones in the planning and to discuss these ideas internationally. Other rooms can provide you with train tickets or you hold in others you town meetings. During the game you will get more access to more rooms by gaining train or flight tickets.

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. Find out more about the project in the articles below.
cos(h) - Collective Open Source Hardware an der HAW Hamburg
Wir von der Open Source Hardware Gruppe cos(h) (Collective Open Source Hardware) sind eine offizielle Hochschulgruppe der HAW Hamburg. Wir suchen motivierte Personen, die uns bei der Entwicklung von Open Source basierten Entwicklungsprojekten unterstützen. Dabei beleuchten wir den gesamten Produktlebenszyklus als Kreislauf (cradle-to-cradle Prinizip) von der Entwicklung, Produktion über die Verwendung bis hin zum Recycling. Neben der technischen Entwicklung von Hard- und Softwarekomponenten beschäftigen wir uns auch mit dem sozioökonomischen Einsatz dieser. Dabei wollen wir interdisziplinär und international über digitale Plattformen miteinander kollabieren. Derzeit arbeiten wir am Open Hardware Projekt
