Barcelona, Sustainability & Resilient Cities
WINTER 2024 PROGRAM APPLICATION OPEN!
DEADLINE: Friday, October 27th, 2023
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 January the city will celebrate its vibrant culture by hosting the Barcelona King’s Parade 2024.
This study abroad course provides a unique opportunity to experience and study Barcelona City through lectures and custom-made guided tours 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.
