The study programme

Developing the green and healthy urban regions of the future. Does that sound like your dream job? Our Sustainable Urban Regions minor programme will prepare you to tackle the challenges ahead. As urban populations continue to grow rapidly all over the world, how do we densify our cities by building more homes when we also need to radically green urban regions? More than ever before, tomorrow’s cities face tremendous challenges in developing climate-adaptive, biodiverse neighbourhoods where inhabitants’ access to nature starts on their doorstep, thus enhancing their health and wellbeing.
