Call for Participation: ECOSOLA-Summer School

African and European Perspectives on Sustainable Urbanisation: Challenges, Dimensions and Solutions

Currently, more than 50 per cent of the world population lives in cities. It is predicted that by the middle of this century, 70 per cent of the world’s population will live in urban areas. The rapid urbanisation poses enormous environmental and social challenges in both African and European countries.

This summer school will focus on questions around how the quality of life of growing urban populations and environmental services can be safeguarded. Examining whether and how participatory and ecosystem-based planning approaches, smart neighbourhood models and (peri-)urban agriculture, we will explore solutions and help urban and peri-urban areas to become more resilient and to advance pathways of more sustainable urbanisation.

The summer school will take place from the 2nd until the 12th of September 2018 at the Carl von Ossietzky University of Oldenburg, Germany and will welcome participants from Tanzania, South Africa and Germany.
