Elective Course
Fall/Spring semester

Moving people around within cities is a wicked problem that defies simplistic solutions. Through combination of mobile lectures, Field Studies, and class discussions we study not only the transportation infrastructure systems used in Copenhagen and other European cities, but the impact of individual and collective decisions about where we live, work, go to school, relax, and shop, as well as our choices of how to get around. Additionally, the European project to develop and deploy low-carbon and sustainable modes of transport is examined to understand the impacts on existing modes of travel and urban form.
