After a successful 1st edition last spring, a new edition of “(Re)Imagining Port Cities: Space, Society and Culture” will start on September 13th. The course will analyse examples of port cities from a multi-disciplinary, cross-cultural perspective. Students will develop the skills to identify and address the challenges port cities face now and into the future. This course will be followed by another one starting on November 3rd, entitled “Water Works: Activating Heritage for Sustainable Development”, addressing contemporary challenges from a socio-spatial and cultural perspective, and activate water heritage for decision-making in water management. Among the instructors is also Mr. Maurice Jansen, AIVP expert on Human Capital for port cities.
