TU Delft Autumn School Planning and Design for the Just Transition

Activity: Participating in or organising an eventParticipation in workshop, seminar, course


This online summer school addresses planning and designing cities and communities for the just transition by bringing together expertise from spatial planning, urban sustainability and resilience, resilience engineering, ethics of resilience and multi-actor systems.

This school actively contributes to the discussion of values in socio-technical transitions and urbanisation, namely issues connected to distributive, procedural and restorative spatial justice, as well as citizen participation, democracy and sustainability understood in its three essential dimensions: social, economic, and environmental. It addresses several SDGs, with a focus on SDGs 11 (Sustainable Cities and Communities), 10 (Reduced Inequalities) and 13 (Climate Action).

In doing so, this summer school addresses the interactions between design and values (mitigation, embodiment, and generation) with an emphasis on operationalisation of societal values in inclusive vision making. This school uses societal conflicts stemming from the transition as springboards to dialogue.

This Summer School enables master students and young professionals to plan and design for the JUST TRANSITION and THE JUST CITY with a robust understanding of the entanglement between spatial justice and successful sustainability transitions.

The school is open and free for students from all over the world interested in planing and designing the JUST CITY.
