The Course aims at promoting a culture of international cooperation among students, scholars and practitioners in the fields of urban design and management, by acquiring:
  • The ability to understand the contexts and interact with people and organizations of the Global South
  • The specific ability to share the search for solutions to face the challenges raised by radical socio-economic, environmental and cultural changes caused by globalisation, above all the rapid and massive urbanisation processes in Countries of the Global South, which raise dramatically new problems of spatial and social inequality, as well as a new and difficult environmental challenge related to the climate change.

The Course offers to new generation of experts the chance to acquire skills and knowledge that will help them to develop an integrated and multidisciplinary approach to planning, design and management of urban settlements and territories in contexts with a high level of social, economic, territorial, and landscape vulnerability.

The Course will begin in November 2015 and will end in June 2016, while the final exam will take place in October 2016.
Students could take part in suggested international projects or workshops also during summertime. At the end of the Course students will receive a certificate of participation.
The Course will be taught in English. If the students who enrol in the Course are more familiar with Italian, the Course can be held mainly in Italian. Students must have in any case a good knowledge of English.
