Abstract

More than 50% of the world’s population occupy less than 3% of the earth’s land surface and generate more than 70% of the global emissions. Large cities and their hinterlands (jointly called metropolitan regions) greatly contribute to global urbanization and sustainability challenges, yet are also key to resolving these same challenges. There are no simple solutions to these grand challenges. Rather the challenges cities face today require a holistic, systemic and transdisciplinary approach that spans different fields of expertise and disciplines such as urban planning, urban design, urban engineering, systems analysis, policy making, social sciences and entrepreneurship. The aim of this MOOC is to integrate different fields of knowledge within the metropolitan context. The course encourages students to explore the living conditions in one’s own city and compare one’s living environment with that of the global community.The students will discover possible solutions for their city’s challenges and what it takes to implement these solutions.
