Summer school: Pathways Towards Sustainable Futures

Dutch Urban, Environmental and Transportation Planning in an Era of Turbulence

Learn about planning in the Netherlands! This January 2019 summer/winter course is organised and taught by the University of Groningen (UG), Groningen, the Netherlands, and delivered in cooperation with the Unviersity of Fortaleza (UNIFOR) in the city of Fortaleza in Brazil, and Universitas Gadjah Mada (UGM) in the city of Yogyakarta, Indonesia.

When?

PASF will be delivered in January 2019 in two parts:

  • Part One, as a one week 'Summer School', will be delivered January 7 - 11, 2019 at the University of Fortaleza (UNIFOR), in the city of Fortaleza, Brazil. This will be the 4th edition of the summer school in Brazil. Earlier editions were delivered in 2016 (UFABC, Santo Andre), in 2017 (UFRGS, Porto Alegre) and in 2018 (UFMG, Belo Horizonte). We are also working on delivering this same one week program simultaneously (so, also January 7-11, 2019) at Universitas Gadjah Mada (UGM), in the city of Yogyakarta, Indonesia (this edition/location of the 'Summer school' needs to be confirmed - confirmation is expected early October 2019).
  • Part Two, as a two week 'Winter School', will be delivered January 16-29, 2019 at the University of Groningen, in the city of Groningen in the Netherlands.

In an ideal world, participants attend both parts - but Part One and Part Two can also be attended separately.

Where?

Groningen is a compact city in the Northern part of the Netherlands, two hours from Amsterdam. It is known as a safe city, with a dense population of students, most of whom use bicycles as their main mode of transportation.
