UCCRN Education: Climate Resilient Urban Design, Planning and Governance & Capacity Building
We work to overcome existing gaps in education on climate-resilient urban planning, design and governance by establishing synergies with leading research and teaching institutions.
Our goal is fostering multidisciplinary knowledge-based cross-sectoral action on climate change mitigation and climate change adaptation from an urban perspective.
Our work focuses on providing Masters and higher education Study Programmes such as Urban Design Climate Workshops (UDCW) where students and teaching staff are confronted with real urban challenges in diverse EU cities, or Master Degree Courses implemented by the University of Naples Federico II, Aalborg Universitet and Universitat Internacional de Catalunya.
