GreenFORCE Summer School

GreenFORCE Summer School

The summer school in Turin is organised jointly by the Interuniversity Department of Urban and Regional Studies and Planning and the Interdepartmental Responsible Risk Resilience Centre (R3C) of Politecnico di Torino and is set in the framework of the School of Planning and Design and supported by Co-PLAN, Institute for Habitat Development in Albania as the coordinating partner; University of Belgrade – Faculty of Geography (UB-GEF) in Serbia and the Center for Economic Analysis Association (CEA) in North Macedonia as the two regional partners; and Nordregio, a pan-Nordic research organisation based in Sweden.

It aims to involve students from different universities in identifying the challenges and opportunities of just and green transitions in Turin’s post-carbon city context. The main challenge is operationalising the green transition principles in the study’s specific context. To face it, spatial and landscape planning instruments and decision-making strategies should be coordinated within a coherent and integrated framework.

The students will attend several lectures and working group activities that introduce the challenges they will have to focus on and present possible ways to approach them. Besides the local perspective, students will learn from European and Western Balkans examples and case studies.

They will be supervised and mentored by an international, multi-disciplinary teaching staff during their activity.
