€ 695

This course will provide you with the latest knowledge and insights into proposals and practices in the transition towards a circular economy and help you to produce innovative solutions to the challenges for spatial developments.

After finishing this course, you will be able to explain how circularity is related to spatial development in cities and regions. You will gain knowledge of the circular economy in general and the specifics that apply at the regional level. You will learn how to identify and develop spatial strategies that stimulate the circular economy in a region and understand their multi-disciplinary and multi-scalar nature, and examine how these strategies conform to regional spatial and circularity strategies and the correlated actors.

Widespread principles for circular city (regional) planning often reduce the challenge to the redesign of value chains, aiming to reduce waste and pollution as well as keeping resources and materials in loops as long as possible. They ignore the fact that the transition also has a spatial aspect to consider. Future circular cities and regions will look different, and need different forms of infrastructure, buildings, open spaces, urban configurations and relations between the city and the countryside.

In this course you will learn how to integrate these spatial aspects into the development of circular strategies. Devising circular regions and cities is a complex collaborative process and requires multi-stakeholder cooperation as well a horizontal and vertical integration of policy. You will be introduced to theories, methods and tools that allow you to bridge the disciplinary silos and become a key player in the circular economy planning and policy making of your cities and regions.

TU Delft's Circular Built Environment Hub has designed and developed this course, working with leading industry and research partners, to achieve a higher level of applicability and relevance. This course builds upon the work that was developed in two large international EU funded research projects. REPAiR – resource management in peri-urban areas and CINDERELA where we are collaborating with ten metropolitan regions across Europe.

The course will run from 6 October for 6 weeks. Please note that enrolment closes on 29 September 2021.
