Urban design and architecture can contribute with new methods and approaches to promote the construction of more inclusive and sustainable cities. Learn more at this  Inclusive and Sustainable Cities Professional Certificate in collaboration with Delft University of Technology (TU Delft) - DelftX.In this program you will take part in a cross-disciplinary conversation that looks into the state of cities in the Global North and Global South. We will discuss the main challenges that urban communities worldwide are facing and examine which methods and approaches can be implemented to promote the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), in particular SDG 11: “Make cities and human settlements inclusive, safe, resilient and sustainable”.

This program consists of three courses. The introductory course will help you identify what are the main urban challenges in your local environment and debate possible innovative solutions for it. The other two courses deal in greater depth with two fundamental challenges related to SDG 11: affordable housing and inequality.

In each course, you will engage in a series of modules that explore a combination of innovative research with first-hand empirical material collected in cities and urban areas visited by the course team. These modules will help you grasp how housing and urban design offer tools and instruments to tackle one of the world’s main challenges: sustainable urbanization for a more sustainable and resilient urban future.
