Last week, the RUVIVAL team had the opportunity to present itself with its own booth at the digital showcase of the University:Future Festival. A video, mission statement and logo were presented, and on Wednesday additional questions could be asked and answered in Space , an interactive space simulation in which laptops fly through space and users are supposed to interact with each other. During several talks various appealing projects were presented, for example the page netlogo, which provides programmable model environments for the simulation of natural and social phenomena.
All in all, the festival was an exciting opportunity to expand the network and to inform interested people even this year!
As we had promised, the RUVIVAL Toolbox is now available in German! We start this week by publishing the first Toolbox on World Water Resources completely in German and we’ll continue posting the rest in the next weeks. The German translations will be available on the HOOU website.

Sustainable rural development is an answer to a multitude of complex pressing issues that require global attention. The responses to these issues are equally complex and the best ones are those that draw synergistic connections and offer holistic solutions. In the making of RUVIVAL, these complexities are recognised and addressed, both when it comes to problems and solutions. That is why in developing RUVIVAL learning elements, different tools, materials and styles are used, for a comprehensive learning experience. Some elements have a more technical or practical nature, while others are more theoretical. Some are text based and others are image based.
Collaboration is key for developing RUVIVAL into the open access e-learning platform it is today. You can see all RUVIVAL collaborators in the Team list. Beyond this, the newest project addition RUVIVAL Community is helping to bring invaluable knowledge sources and practice examples.
In the following, you will learn how all these different components come together when creating RUVIVAL. Click on the elements to learn more:
