Sustainability & Resilient Cities

(conducted in English)

Barcelona, known for having one of the most thriving contemporary cultures in the world. This global city is a model of sustainable urban change for other world cities and offers a rich contemporary culture as well as an important political and historic background. Barcelona's current mayor, Ada Colau, was a well-known housing activist before becoming the city's first female mayor. During the month of July, the city will celebrate its vibrant culture by hosting the Barcelona Grec Festival 2018.

This study abroad course provides a unique opportunity to experience and study Barcelona City through lectures and custom-made guided tours to six key sites in Barcelona. This course will enable students to understand Barcelona and its new urban policies which are focused on promoting a "common good" through the co-management of urban space (BUITS Plan), initiatives towards environmental justice and participatory governance policies.
