Pathways Towards Sustainable Futures
This two-country summer/winter school targets students interested in learning about the unique urban, environmental and transportation policies that have been implemented in The Netherlands in the past and policies that will need to be implemented in the future. These policies include challenges and innovations in sustainable transportation and infrastructure, compact city policies, water management, resilience, renewable energy and regional development.
The first part is a ‘summer’ course, delivered in close cooperation with the Universidade de Brasilia in Brasilia, Brazil. The second part is a ‘winter’ course that will take place in the city of Groningen, The Netherlands.
Both parts deliver and discuss not only theoretical insights and intervention options, but, and this is especially true for the second part in Groningen, also in-depth acquaintances with the Dutch planned urban and regional landscapes by means of guided site visits and excursions.
