This course will provide you with the latest knowledge and insights into proposals and practices in the transition towards a circular economy and help you to produce innovative solutions to the challenges for spatial developments.
After finishing this course, you will be able to explain how circularity is related to spatial development in cities and regions. You will gain knowledge of the circular economy in general and the specifics that apply at the regional level. You will learn how to identify and develop spatial strategies that stimulate the circular economy in a region and understand their multi-disciplinary and multi-scalar nature, and examine how these strategies conform to regional spatial and circularity strategies and the correlated actors.
This online course is (co-)initiated by the TU Delft Circular Built Environment Hub and PI Arjan van Timmeren.
Previous summer schools
This year, we organized the first online summer school. During the AMS Summer school 2020, 15 enthusiastic professionals from a wide range of backgrounds and countries built their knowledge & skills on the Living Lab approach.
This Summer school challenged participants to work with a new mindset, build a new network of professionals and academia. During the summer school, participants worked towards solving the real-world challenges of Quay Walls and Bridges and Positive energy Districts.
In February 2021 we'll organize another Living Lab Winter School, focussing on different themes. More information and exact dates will follow soon.
