🌎When the World is Your Classroom: Our "Designing the Sustainable City" Course
As part of our Global Good Commitment we continue to roll out our Global Pillars Courses, including "Designing the Sustainable City" to more of our locations.
The course was piloted at three Centers (Barcelona, London, Milan) with 16 students in Spring 2022. Given the success and importance of the course, we've expanded the course to even more Centers so that more students can benefit from the meaningful coursework.
Starting in Fall 2023, our unique ES/SO360 Designing the Sustainable City course, which is currently offered in Barcelona, Berlin, Cape Town, Granada, London, Madrid, Milan, Nice, Santiago, Tokyo, and Vienna, will also be offered in Bueno Aires and Quito, followed by Amsterdam, Dublin, Freiburg, and Paris in Spring 2024.
