What Urban Professionals Have to Say

As a trained urbanist, I chose to follow a range of EIT courses to strengthen my understanding of strategic planning instruments that may help us to strenghten the public's awareness and acceptance for a sustainability mobility transition. This course (Sustainable Urban Mobility Plans - SUMPs) provided a solid overview of the goals, legal status, implementation and barriers of SUMPs, whereby I appreciated the focus on participation as basis for its success in the long run.
This course (Designing a Livable Neighbourhood: The Woonerf Concept) is a wonderful introduction to designing livable, pedestrian-oriented street spaces. The material is presented in an extremely clear and logical way, and the course assignment forces you to apply your learning to a practical example - a place that matters to you!
An extremely relevant course (User Experience for Mobility and Public Space) which provides the right vocabulary and perspective for critically assessing and understanding the design of our mobility infrastructure & public space anywhere in the world. It is only after appreciating this perspective that we can begin to transform or disrupt these spaces for the better of all.
I have lived in cities my whole life and I see how public space has been unevenly distributed all these years, being dedicated mostly to private cars' parking and driving. I came to this course (Designing the Cycling City) looking for answers to pollution, noise and how infrastructure can play a role to make cities places that are worth living in. The course nicely guides you to make the case for better street design. I highly recommend it to any city dweller looking forward to human-centred cities.
