Posted by Mildred on February 1st, 2015 · 2015, Built Environment, Competition, Conference, Engineering, Self funded, Uncategorized, Universitas 21 (U21)

Cities are complex, dynamic structures: difficult to predict and manage, with everyday issues arising in economic stability, energy security, environmental integrity, independent living, communications, built environment and civic participation.

Understanding how these services combine to produce a city level effect is a challenge. Their sheer complexity and unpredictability makes the policy setting and management of effective, high-functioning, successful cities an increasingly important social and economic priority. Successful cities are those which position themselves to understand systemic behaviors and develop policy and service responses which address the issues these create – an ability to respond and adapt to the changing environment around them.

The 12th U21 Summer School 2015 will take place from 1 – 15 July 2015 at the University of Glasgow, UK. This years theme is Cities and Citizens in the Digital Age and will offer a programme of seminars and practical experiences demonstrating how new technologies can be used to support and improve the vital components of a fully functional city. This will cover citizen engagement, transportation, energy, big data, protecting vulnerable groups and physical regeneration, with a focus on how key services are increasingly informed and influenced by emerging technologies.

Fees: Fees are £600 per student/staff member, to include 15 nights’ accommodation, breakfast and lunch, Welcome and Farewell events, a weekend trip and most evening meals. Students need their own spending money for occasional dinners on free nights, transfers to and from the airport, and personal costs while visiting Scotland.

Nomination: UNSW will nominate students with an interest in the Cities and Citizens theme. Applications close on February 20th at 9am. To apply, please complete the UNSW GEP Outgoing Application and return to advisor4globaled@unsw.edu.au.

Contact: For further information, please contact International Networks Coordinator at U21summerschool2015@glasgow.ac.uk. For more information please read the U21 Summer School 2015 Final Brief.
