Explore the potential of urban green infrastructure

Welcome! As cities grow, the needs of those who live or visit them also change and the way our infrastructure is designed and organized affects the way we live, wouldn’t you agree?

Curbside space is usually used for parking or bus stops, but with society and mobility evolving, it is increasingly used for other purposes such as public space, terraces, delivery areas, charging stations or cycling and shared mobility infrastructure. This can lead to a competitive situation between uses and users and where public space is not optimized for its best use. This short introductory course will give you a practical understanding of how flexible curbside management can help cities to manage their curb more effectively.

By the end of this course, you will be able to:
  • Discuss curbside management with respect to diverse users, and explain the benefits of flexible curbsides
  • Outline how technology can help understand the ways people are using curbsides, and how digitisation can enable a more dynamic use of the curb
  • Describe the strategy to design a (flexible) curbside according to users needs, looking at tactical urbanism and illustrating it with examples of best practice
  • Explain the role of authorities, decision-makers, citizens, and business stakeholders in the design proces.
This course is aimed at urban planners, city officials, mobility professionals, retailers and logistics professionals (stakeholders who are affected by curbside management)

Innovative approach on curbside management

Interesting course on new ways of exploring and managing the curbside. Eye opening to understand how curb management can also be flexible and based on innovative approches using digital technology and problem-solving ideas. The examples given are all from the Netherlands, it would be nice to see other examples from non-Dutch cities.

informative & fun!

The course was super helpful in learning about curbside management and all the possibilities in improving them. As some one interested in urban planning, I love to learn more about all things mobility - It is great to see what multimodal options there are out there. The course was really accessible and gave me a ton of new perspectives to think about 🙂
