The Dutch Experience

The Summer School ‘Society, Environment, Transportation and Space: The Dutch Experience’ of the Faculty of Spatial Sciences of the University of Groningen is a combination of interesting lectures and many excursions and site visits. You will learn about Dutch spatial-economic problems and the implemented planning policies.

Two typically Dutch core themes are highlighted in the course: ‘Water management’ and ‘compact city policy’. The excursions and site visits allow you to see and experience the theory. In this way, you will develop an accurate level of understanding. After successful completion of the summer course, you will receive a certificate worth 6 European Credits.

The Faculty of Spatial Sciences offers this 4-week course each year in June. If you are interested in issues in sustainability, environmental planning, sustainable transportation/bicycle usage and infrastructure, urban and regional planning, water management and related disciplines, you are welcome to join the SETS summer course.
