Cities in Europe are global front-runners for climate initiatives to both reduce greenhouse gas emissions and adapt to current and future climatic changes. This course focuses on some of the opportunities and challenges associated with the integration of climate change concerns into the heart of urban planning. The journey takes us on urban exploration while analyzing the synergies, conflicts, and trade-offs between mitigation and adaptation, understanding how planners address the complexities of planning for many uncertain conditions, and the ways in which climate change has become a driver for resilient urban development.
