Hi there!

Looking for a great activity that gets you tuned in on sustainability and circular cities? Always wanted to re-think a city and improve its carbon footprint? Are you curious to see how other students from around the globe complement your insights with their multidisciplinary backgrounds? Then this Circular Cities summer school might just be your deal!

The next edition will be organised in September 2021. This edition will run in parallel in 3 Cities: Ghent (Belgium), Krakow (Poland), Mondragón (Spain/Basque Country).

About the Circular Cities summer school

During this 2-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 2021 edition is organised in a blended format: partly online, partly on campus. Check the programme for more details
