Master Class Sustainable Alliances for Urban and Regional Development
The European Master Class Sustainable Alliances for Urban and Regional Development is a Master Class for experienced professionals in the field of urban and regional development. Based on cases in various European countries we work on the establishment of an European school of developers of the futures spheres of living. We do this by sharing practice, visiting sites and investigating them with the support of acknowledged masters in the field.
The contemporary urban and regional developments are increasingly the work of multi actor systems due to the high levels of complexity and high investment risks. The success of urban and regional development is therefore more and more in the hands of alliances, in stead of in the hand of one single planner. .
Population dynamics (>50% living in the cities, increase elderly people), new economic approaches and climate change require new answers in which the knowledge and know how of a mixed field of experts is clustered: designers, architects, scientists, economists, construction builders, etc. It is in the alliance that their knowledge comes together.
