Skip to 0 minutes and 8 seconds Mobility has become an integral component in all of our lives. Transport allows us to access activities and to participate in life. Transport systems are very different across cities and facilitate very varied experiences of life. However, in most cities, the private car has become too dominant. Over the period from the 1950s to the 1980s and onwards, our lives are too dependent on the use of the car. Space on the street has been given by a complex set of processes, institutions, and actors through one dominant mode, the private car, at the expense of all others. This has been justified in terms of supporting individualised travel but has ignored the very significant adverse impacts on society.
Skip to 1 minute and 6 seconds In this course, we ask how transport systems can most effectively support sustainable cities.
Skip to 1 minute and 16 seconds Your lead educators on this course are from the Bartlett School of Planning, University College London. We will hear from a range of experts giving lectures and discussing case study material. We will explore practise in many cities internationally, including Delft, Freiburg, Hong Kong, Hauten, and London. Using videos, articles, and discussions, we will ask how transport affects our cities, examine the Avoid-Shift-Improve framework for development sustainable urban mobility, and assess good practise in integrated urban planning and transport. The course is intended for a range of people, including transport and city planning practitioners in the global scene, including in Africa, South America, and Asia. You can join us to explore how transport systems can most effectively support sustainable cities.
