RUVIVAL Toolbox contains knowledge and methods to revive the land, use synergies and develop rural settings. Each entity in the Toolbox consists of a video, a short summary, a literature review and a quiz. Furthermore, each box provides you with helpful tools like databases, calculators or manuals. The Toolbox is developed together with Master and PhD students and researchers at the Institute of Wastewater Management and Water Protection at Hamburg University of Technology (TUHH).

Every week we publish new Toolbox elements, Interactive Lecture parts, or RUVIVAL News. Join our Newsletter to receive an e-mail when new content is released.
