About the Circular Cities summer school

During this 1-week online summer school, you are trained in novel solutions for sustainable circular cities, with a strong focus on the role and use of water, energy and raw materials in the transition movement.

Training sessions alternate with a multi-day tournament. In small multidisciplinary groups (5 students/group) you are challenged to re-design a city district, while dealing with imposed scenarios and challenges on Water, Energy, and Raw Materials.

The 2022 edition is organised in a blended format: a series of weekly online lectures leads to an immersive week in Ghent. Check the programme for more details
