OLIVE is a wiki-style web project that was launched just 40 hours after the Tohoku Earthquake and Tsunami. With the objective of sharing do-it-yourself tips and tutorials to beneifit refugees, the site immediatly spread with ideas and knowledge from all over the world.

The ideas and designs gathered through OLIVE were not only uploaded and shared via the WEB, but have begun to reach the disaster victims in print as well. We truly believe that knowledge can save lives and nowadays we can not accept this explanation: “they did not survive because they did not know.”

Translated into English, Mandarin and Korean by the volunteers, OLIVE has been still active and grown as the database, using the power of collective wisdom.
