PhD Summer School Design for Adaptation. Resilient Urban Communities

Date: 07 September 2015 - 18 September 2015
Location: Bologna, Italy

This two-week intensive programme revolves around the challenge of adaptation towards climate change faced by urban communities.

Revolving around the strategic challenge to increase the capacity of society, cities and infrastructure and to be able to adapt to climate change, the Bologna region with its built and natural environment will serve as an example to assess the problems.

This summer school offers a learning-by-experiencing approach to design for adaptation in the context of urban communities.

On the basis of case studies revolving around the Bologna region, you will learn how to use a range of tools and methods and how to develop adaptation services and solutions for urban contexts, with a specific focus on UHI, water management, extreme events and hydro-geological risks.

Engage in the creation of collaborative, multi-perspective, cross-disciplinary approaches for designing innovative and creative ideas and solutions, in order to boost effective adaptation actions.
