This article was first published in German on Insights.

This is the beginning of a series of Making of publications on the RUVIVAL simulation game. Every year, the participants have 7 weeks to plan eco-villages. 2020 makes this the fifth round. The aim of the series is not only to share our experiences and invite participation, but also to enable others to reproduce or adapt this simulation game according to their needs.

Currently, it is still possible to enter this year’s game. You can still take on the role of a fictitious person who intends to settle in the community later.
